VIDEO: Echidna uses nose as a snorkel
Contrary to popular belief, echidnas are generally good swimmers.
ECHIDNAS AREN’T exactly known for their aquatic travels despite being Australia’s most widespread native animal.
However, contrary to popular belief, echidnas are generally good swimmers, sometimes swimming relatively vast distances for travel, or simply to groom themselves.
Luckily however Ashley Hallam managed to capture this rare moment on camera.
The echidna, seemingly using its nose as a snorkel, made its way across the Swan River, at Bicheno on Tasmania’s east coast.
