Taronga Zoo Roar & Snore

As I gently stroked the surprisingly velvety feet of an echidna, I realised how fitting it is that its image should grace the reverse side of the Australian five cent coin: because this newly-hatched puggle was so small it could indeed fit comfortably on the coin. A puggle of course is a...
