Not so long ago Jake (the Jack Russell-Corgi cross with Queen Anne front legs who thinks His Job is to Keep An Eye On Everything) ran TWO lovely echidnas to earth.
He spent from 5 in the morning till 10 just helplessly yipping at these invaders of his territory.
They are so lovely, there is a little furrow under the back gate where the echidnas come in to forage in the night.
Around my house...
I am so lucky to live on the edge of the bush and be visited by some amusing creatures.
The echidnas waddle and snuffle around.
This is what they look like when they aren't hunkered down escaping mad crazy watchdogs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-JgYrpncA2Y&feature=youtube_gdata_player
This video was taken not too far from where I live - the bush is the same, and I could probably find mine ambling around too if I wasn't sleeping so much...
