In case you’re not familiar with echidnas, they are the only other egg-laying mammal (a.k.a monotreme) aside from the famous platypus. Echidnas are definitely goofy looking. This specific one has an explosion of adorable spikes and a relatively large mouth/nose combination. Doesn’t his face look so tiny surrounded by so many spikes? I’d love to hold this guy in my hands, but only on the condition that his spines aren’t too prickly!
