The echidna, sometimes known as the spiny anteater – Australia’s answer to the porcupine – is about as curious as the snow that falls upon our great southern land. It belongs to the monotreme order of egg-laying mammals along with the platypus (let’s not get started on that thing though).
While Australia might not offer the most abundant powder – although it’s been going off of late – it sure has a lot to offer by way of exciting animal encounters. Filmed here is the rescue/relocation of said echidna as it attempted to traverse across the piste of one of Australia’s best-known ski resorts – Thredbo.
