Having a paddle

Image of Tasmanian Echidna

Description:

Tachyglossus aculeatus (Short-beaked Echidna) having a paddle in a roadside gutter along the Lake St Clair Road, Tasmania.Never seen an Echidna in water before and it seemed very much at ease (the water wasn't deep). We could see the tongue flick out and I assumed it was having a drink. Fascinating to watch.
