It was a very close race, but the echidna won! Despite its spiny hide, this little guy is considered the cutest of the monotremes! Congratulations!

As part of a gift package put together by Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, an enclosure for bilbies, Australian desert-dwelling marsupials, will be named in honor of the newborn prince at Sydney's Taronga Zoo. Oh, and Baby Cambridge will get some cuddly bilby toys to match!

The adorable meerkat pups are the first to be born at Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia in seven years. Born just over a month ago on January 7th, the unnamed pups' first outing was to practice their sentry dusting skills. (^o^)

Sometimes it gets a little chilly down under and the Koalas need to wear sweaters. But I always get a little confused about the seasons in Australia, because summer in the northern hemisphere is winter in the southern hemisphere, and vice versa? Do I have that right?
