Coy but Prickly

Young, Short-beaked Echidna at Mt Field National Park, Tasmania. February 2006.

This has to be a near perfect shot (the flash made him flinch slightly). This little fellow showed no fear at my presence.

This is one of two egg-laying mammals that occur in Tassie. The other is the Platypus.
