Plus adorable echidna puggles
This rolly-polly puggle is the result of a successful breeding program collaboration between the University of Queensland in Australia and the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. Scientists have bred 14 short-beaked echidna, a relative of the platypus, over the last five years and are currently nurturing five new eggs. While the short-beaked echidna is still relatively common in Australia, its long-beaked relative is endangered. Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary
