Thanks all Echidna news contributors - I've not only enjoyed all the photos and news but have learnt so much more about the critters! Very entertaining. (BTW my sister-in-law kept a goldfish named Fluffy.)

You're in luck as they're always in rut.

Have you heard of Echidna CSI https://grutznerlab.weebly.com/echidna-csi.html. They have an app for iPhone and Android that lets you collect pictures etc of echidnas and send them off to scientists who are studying them.
