A baby echidna is both weird and adorable

Via Grist

Echidnas are spiny mammals that live in Australia and are like the weird cousins of duck-billed platypuses. Like a momma platypus, a momma echidna lays eggs, which she then hatches in a marsupial-like pouch. And the babies are called puggles! And they’re super weirdly cute!

 

You can see this for yourself, because a rescued puggle, which likely fell out of its mother’s pouch, is currently living at the Taronga Wildlife Hospital near Sydney. You will basically die of cuteness watching this video.
