Results will go up on the main page late afternoon, with full stats early evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of the main page.

---Advertisement---

The four species of echidna, which belong to the family Tachyglossidae, are found in New Guinea and Australia, with the short-beaked echidna (Tachyglossus aculeatus) being the species most found in Australia (the other three, long-beaked echidna belonging to genus Zaglossus, are much rarer, and found on New Guinea).

The echidna is also found on the reverse of the Australian five-cent coin, a design that has not changed since its introduction over 50 years ago.
