All prototherians are carnivorous, with their diets consisting of various invertebrates. Platypuses forage in the benthos of lakes and streams, using their sensitive bills to find prey. They are generalist predators, whereas echidnas specialize on either ants and termites (Tachyglossus) or worms (Zaglossus). Both species of echidna are powerful diggers and use their claws and snouts to root through the earth to find food.
