The point of the story

Today I came across an Echnida (Tachyglossus aculeatus) on the side of a quiet dirt road from Baynton to Kyneton in central Victoria.   On one hand it is like a hedgehog or an ant eater, but on the other hand, it is nothing like them. It is one of the last two egg laying mammals in Australia,  the other is the Platypus (which we do see here, though very rarely).
