11. Echidna Crossing
Echidnas are monotremes and can swim. They need to go in the water to cool their bodies down. Every couple of years we have an echidna sighting at Epsom PS. Last year there was one digging a hole near the football posts so we put it in a box and took it down to the creek near school.
The echidna is featured on the 5 cents piece which they have been talking about eliminating from our coins. Do we need 5 cent pieces? The one and two cent pieces have gone already.
