Some of us were just born to stand out! There's certainly some truth to that with this handsome little albino echidna, captured here by @puddlehub on the Freycinet Peninsula. Echidnas are common across Tassie - especially dry, open forest such as that found on @eastcoasttasmania. On the Australian mainland, echidnas are smaller, less furry and generally nocturnal. However, in Tassie, it's common to see these fluffy, spikey balls ambling and snuffling about during the day. Their diet is largely made up of ants and termites, as well as grubs, larvae and worms. And inside that pointed snout is a 15 centimetre long, mucous-covered tongue that signals a sticky end for any unsuspecting creepy-crawly! Thanks for tagging #discovertasmania, Ros!
