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!
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?
