Artist description:
The Short-beaked Echidna is one of Australia's two egg-laying mammals. They are so cute, but tedious to draw all those spikes. Thanks for looking.

Virtually all mammals reproduce by giving birth to live young. Except Platypus and Echidna. They are Monotremes, egg-laying mammals. And like all mammals, monotreme mothers feed their babies with milk. :-)

I thought mammels didn't lay eggs? I thought they gave birth to live cubs :) anyway... awesome detail, I love this drawing 5/5

Ohhh...you have the patience to do such tedious details, KGH,,this creature is endangered, isnt it? theres also one unique kind - the platypus ( i think its the poisonous one)

The platypus is the only other mammal that lays eggs. But I think they might be related to the ant-eaters.
