Echidna in the Garden

13th September 2015

Our little dog alerted us to an Echidna not far from the front door on Sunday Night.  While we see evidence of them, I haven't seen one here for a little while.  The Echidna was at a guess a sub-adult and it happily dug away for ants while we watched it and took some photos.  The following day I began digging up one of the gardens along the edge and didn't get it finished, but the Echidna was grateful for the work I had done, as it was back again in the garden following along where I had dug hours earlier, looking for ants.

  1. Brings back fond memories for me of an Echidna I saw when I visited Australia in 1999.

    1. Lisa, many Australian's even refer to them as Porcupine's also, although they are quite different - just as cute though.

    1. Thanks Marie for your lovely comment, I am so glad that you enjoyed this blog post - we were rather fortunate that this little guy didn't mind us getting up close to take a photo and the video footage. Thank you for visiting our blog. I hope you get to see one someday yourself.
