Toot toot! All board the #echidna love train. That’s right – while many animals take the #winter as an opportunity to #rest, #Australia’s echidnas live up to their weird and wonderful name, forming the annual love #train during the colder months of the year. The spectacle is both cute and uplifting, but the purpose of the train is far greater than amusing the likes of #locals and #travelers. Reaching up to ten animals long, the typically shy male echidnas unite nose to tail, ‘trailing’ a female echidna for days on end before one lucky male is chosen for breeding.
