I hope you enjoy my short video of this echidna, who stopped by to visit us this morning. He wandered around our verandah before wedging himself under this table and proceeded to scratch himself as if no-one was watching! We watched him through the window before I had the great idea of trying to video him. There is no such thing as privacy at our place!
Echidna’s are known for their shyness and will roll themselves into a spiky ball when confronted with any sort of perceived danger, so to see this little fellow clearly enjoying himself scratching away to his hearts content was a fantastic way to start the day.
Here are two other guests who visited us recently. My husband was able to get up close and personal with them in the paddock and they didn’t seem to mind him taking their photo.
I think they are the cutest things! What do you think?
PS. Sorry if you’ve already seen this video on instagram or facebook – I must admit to being a bit excited 🙂
