Their names are called, they raise a paw


For those even remotely still interested in the Australian echidna, I realised I had this extremely flattering picture of me with one of the creatures.
This was taken 2 years ago on the east coast of Tasmania.
Echidnas are not fearsome animals (unless you are an ant).
Despite our best encourangement to get the critter to say hello all it did was dig itself into the sand to protect its soft pink bits.
Perhaps if you didn't know it was an animal you may think, "That fat tit seems to have dropped his wig".Posted by Hello

Many animals seem to have the instinct to hide their heads in holes when scared. No wonder I sometimes try to bury myself under the covers when stressed...

And "soft pink bits" just sounds... wrong... haha.

The echidna has a remarkable ability to burrow vertically very quickly.
One always has to protects ones soft pink bits...

(lol) "That fat tit seems to have dropped his wig"

Perhaps the two hours of sleep I got last night are kicking in, but I found that (quote I mean) to be really funny.

And yeh, pink bits does seem a bit wrong doesn't it?
