Echidna


Echidna
Originally uploaded by battyden
An orphaned echidna puggle, approx 30 days old, 115 grams, currently in the care of my fellow rescuer, Mel. He is blind and deaf, and his fur and spines are little more than a 5 o'clock shadow.

The kids who found him on the mother's body named him "Bob."

I'm not sure what Mel has done, but it looks like Bob will be one of the few sub-150g successes we've had, and that includes the Zoo's efforts.
