The Rarely Talked About, Unique
Short-nosed Echidna

By Allan Whittome (Whitto) [Public domain], via Wikimedia CommonsFor our Organismal Biology class at the University of Wisconsin- La Crosse, we were assigned to make a webpage about an organism. We chose the Tachyglossus aculeatus, better known as the Short-nosed Echidna, over many other organisms for its differences from most other mammals and its very little publicity. This extremely unique creature is rarely brought up and not very well known. This site allows you to explore many different aspects of the Short-nosed Echidna. Its phylogenetic trees can be found in Classification. Find out where this mammal is from in Habitat. Learn about its special Adaptations. Follow the journey of a T. aculeatus young in Life History. Discover some very personal facts in Reproduction. To see how they interact with other species, check out the Interactions. And to top it all off, look at the Facts to find even more information!
