They're back!  Or more likely have been chilling in the Cyclops Mountains for 60 years unseen.  :)

With those spikes and that long nose, are they useful in covertly introducing dangerous people to darkness?

That's an interesting question.  I don't think so JWags.....although they can dig with the best of them.  I have tremendous respect for Platypuses and Echidnas.  I'll have to look it up but I believe both have been on this planet longer than any other mammal.  And no, it's not platipi.  They're platypus or platypuses. In the case of this particular Echidna, and that species, a 60 yr absence from human sight is remarkable.

There are some reports Echidnas have been around 200 million years.  :)
