Echidnas! Learn About Echidnas and Enjoy Colorful Pictures - Look and Learn!

Echidnas! Learn About Echidnas and Enjoy Colorful Pictures - Look and Learn! (50+ Photos of Echidnas) - Becky Wolff

4 Stars, borrow

 

Overall, a really decent edition to the series.  I learned a lot about the echidna and had known next to nothing about them.  The pictures are mostly decent too.

 

I  Have a slight issue with this statement:”Echidna is slightly less intelligent than a cat.” Who is to say?  How can you tell how intellegent a cat or an echidna is?  This is too cute. A baby enchidna is called a puggle.
