[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Echidna, also known as spiny anteaters, belong to the family Tachyglossidae in the monotreme order of egg-laying mammals.
There are four extant species, which, together with the platypus, are the only surviving members of that order and are the only extant mammals that lay eggs. Although their diet consists largely of ants and termites, they are no more closely related to the true anteaters of the Americas than to any other placental mammal. They live in New Guinea and Australia. The Echidnas are named after a monster in ancient Greek mythology.

Je ne connaissais pas cet Échidné. Il a un regard tout triste. Merci de nous l'avoir présenté. La photo est très nette et il est bien mis en valeur.
A bientôt

Hello Lior,
A very funny looking Echnida-species with its long snout. Always interesting to see rarely shown animals. Lovely natural shot, almost monochromatic too. Most interesting!
Thanks and kind regards

Buen ángulo y colores para esta interesante especie.
Saludos Lior: Josep Ignasi.
