Cute Overload :D
I wanna get schnozzular
let’s get into schnozzular [SNORF]
This echidna (what’s that!?) brot to you by stellar sender-inner Johanna S.
OMG! Look at those prickles! I think I’ll adore him from afar!
Also–adorabuhls! Echidna you not! *apologizes profusely for that*
Now that’s cute of a different kind altogether!
He’s been a bit heavy handed with the hair gel and highlights.
a punk rock star?
Poor echidna. It always seems to come in second on most people’s list of “favorite egg-laying mammal”.
Other fun echidna facts, courtesy of Wikipedia, baby echidnas are called puggles, echidna’s (and platypus) don’t have nipples, and they were named after a monster in Greek mythology.
okay, so obviously, I forgot to close my link tab. A little help here?
Nah, it’s Olivia Snouton John!
Hahaha, Martha in Washington!
What an adorable pin cushion!
I’ve met a couple of echidnas – one strolled into my school one day, casual as you please. My school was only a couple of hundred yards from Kuringai Chase National Park (where Skippy was filmed) so he probably didn’t have far to walk. (Here, only that huge freeway didn’t exist at the time.)
*approving snerk for the muy clevaire pun*
But I think it WORKS on the runway !!!!
*begins singing “I was strolling through the park, one daaaaaaaaaaaaaay….”
Whatever Echidna is using for hair product, I want it!
Now that’s cute of a different kind!
it’s a nosicle-sicle
I knew they were named after Typhon’s mate Echidna, but I didn’t know the other facts. Puggles? I thought that was a pug/beagle mix!
Is it just me, or is his shnozz upside down?
Hey, they showed one of these in “Guardians of Ga’Hoole!”
The spiny echidna was the second-greatest thing at the Taronga Zoo, IMO. They are just the size of a soccer ball and so keen!
(Greatest thing was a platypus eating a crawdad. Great for me, great for the platypus, not so great for the crawdad.)
It’s also a porcupine of a different color :)
Ya dumayiu chto, eta an elephant, wearing a fancy spiny coat for the Oscars!!!
What about wombats? *pouting*
He looks quite a bit like Spiny Norman:
That’s what Knuckles the Sega character is.
He looks like Guy Fieri! (or rather, his “hair” looks like Guy’s hair)
Yes, yes! And I never knew what an echidna was UNTIL I saw Knuckles when I played the “Sonic the Hedgehog 3″ Sega game way back when! They are really fascinating creatures. :)
Ideed, reminds me of the book signing I went to the other day
Wombats were in a tie for third. They were asleep, but so cute and chubby looking! My hosts told me of a campground they’d visited, where you tripped over the wombats at night, but I don’t know if that wasn’t the sort of story you tell the tourists.
Turns out thats the favorite animal of the person signing, and little known outside the Sonic Fandom
So little known in fact there are only 34 comments on this post
And let’s get spicular! Spicular!
I see you understand the POINT of this post
And of coarse, no one cares, but someone I sent it too joked about hugging it. So what other animals in Australia are that adorable? Oh yeah, and I told the person signing that their scientific name means fast tounge, and not to steal their emeralds
Did anyone yet share that echidnas have four penises? and that they are the only egg laying mammal?! these things are crazy! i just learned about them last week, not echidnaing you!
You are forgetting the platypodes, which is funny as usually people forget the echidnas and only talk about Ornithorhycus anaitus.
And no one cares Bindi Irwin likes this critter
