Hmm. That tiny creature would be a great snack for me.
"STOP! YOU'RE GONNA HURT YOURSELF!!!"
This would surely be tasty!
Oh, I am so sorry! I was trying to eat a worm that was right next to you. Heh heh heh.
Righhhhhht. Anyway, you were about to hurt yourself, really badly!
Well, since I am an echidna, do you see my spines? Their made of keratin, which is also the material that makes up our fingers. Which makes them strong. They are also sharp, so if I hadn't stopped you in time, you would have been screaming in pain.
Wow! That is fascinating! Can you tell me more about echidnas?
Echidnas, who are sometimes known as spiny anteaters, belong to the family Tachyglossidae in the monotreme order of egg-laying mammals. The four extant species of echidnas, with the duck-billed platypus, are the only surviving members of the order Monotremata and are the only living mammals that lay eggs.
