The Taronga Wildlife Hospital recently became home to a 40 day old Echidna puggle, named Beau. Echidna mammas have milk patches which excrete milk for their babies to lap up. Taronga Wildlife Hospital workers feed Beau from the palm of their hands, so it can lap milk as it would do in the wild. While feeding, Beau resembles a mini vacuum cleaner, going back and forth making sure every drop of milk is sucked up – contributing to its ever growing belly.
