Echidna and platypus are the only members of the monotreme family which are Mammals that lay eggs and feed their babies with milk.
Echidnas are 14 - 16 inches (35 - 45cm) with a weight of 4.5 - 15 lb (2 - 7kg).
Echidna has a pointy snout and long sticky tongue to catch ants and termites.
threatened Echidna uses one of 3 tactics:
1) Universal. Run away
2) Traditional. Curl itself into a ball like a hedgehog to expose its prickly thorns
3) Unique. Burrows straight down ( on sand or soft soil ) and shows only its back spines holding on with its claws thus resisting
being pulled out of the ground
