I know my mum loves echidnas! She has photos of echidnas on her desk at work and a couple even at home! But now I know they are mostly all of one echidna! Pugsley! Pugsley is a small but really old echidna that lives at the Education Centre. Mum says she is very friendly and loves meeting children in her lessons. Pugsley is about 20 years old but looks like the youngest of all the echidnas living in her yard. I think it is because she is so small. Pugsley loves a walk in the sun in the afternoon and digging for ants and termites around her yard. I asked mum if she has a leash during her walks and mum said, No, none of the echidnas do but Pugsley is well behaved she will just walk alongside her keepers like a puppy! Too cute!
