A prickly little visitor.


Seamus looking a little unsure
Feeling a bit more comfortable.

A friend of our bought home an echidna for the kids to have a look at. Seamus was really keen to see it as he had never been up close to one before. They are quite cute with their little noses and beady eyes, it's no wonder they are the subjects of several children's books. Tonight it will go back to where it came from.

Beautiful photos! I have never seen one of those either! I think I'd be a little unsure too!

WOW.... it's bigger than I expected one to be! I take it the pricklies really prickle?
