The Echidna

Echidnas (Tachyglossus Aculeatus Setosus)

These delightfully awkward spiny, long beaked animals may not look anything like a Platypus but the two are actually related. Find out how these intelligent little bulldozers of the bush live and why they are related to the Platypus on a tour through our famous echidna garden.
Meet big Thomas, Edwina and Eddie as they wander around your feet. The Echidna is another must-see animal for your bucket list. They will win you over.
