This is me being all fascinated by this little fellow, and it is NOT weird because they really are fascinating. Did you know that:
* They can live up to 50 years.
* They have a four-headed penis that is 7 cm long when erected (its shaft covered with penile pines) (and nope, didn’t see it).
* They are the only mamals that lay eggs (with the platypus). The egg hatches after 10 days and then the female echidna places the puggle (baby echidna) in her temporary pouch where it’ll grow for 2 to 3 months.
* They love munching ants
Check out their rear claws and how strangely they move around:
Come to Australia or New Guinea and you might get the chance to observe them.
