    I was at a wildlife park / zoo in australia last year just outside of cairns and waited I dont know how long for one of these to emerge from the bush it was hiding in. Unfortunately it never did so ive still never seen one in real life

    Drive Oz enough and you will surely see one on the road..dead or alive.They are a very interesting animal to watch as they go about ripping up what seems impossibly hard dry ground so easily.

    Apart from them being an egg laying mammal I don't know much about them, looking at that snout do they eat worms or grubs etc.?
