Short-Beaked Echidna

From the Flickr description page:

    face to face with the echidna. Some might say they have a face only a mother could love, but I think they are kind of cute. They are one of three remaining species of egg-laying mammals (monotremes). Taken at the Taronga Zoo, Sydney, NSW, Australia

I’m not sure why anybody would say it’s a face only a mother could love. It’s definitely cute!
