Today I handed Rexie over to her new carer. She will be housed in a much larger cage now, one 3feet wide x 3 feet high x 10 feet long. The floor is a mix of sand, potting mix and wood chips about 6" deep. Rexie will spend her days Outside, but for a week she'll spend nights Inside. Soon she'll be outside all the time learning secret Echidna business, such as digging, hiding, and termite foraging. By mid September she will be ready to go bush.
My bathroom feels empty without the cage in the corner and there is a vacant place in the freezer where her food used to be.
