Life in a Pouch Presentation.
Saturday 25th of February, from 10am.
Early life of Australian Marsupials and Echidna.
This unusual little creature on the left is a newborn Tasmanian Devil. Like all marsupials the newborn young has only sufficient development of the body and internal organs to allow crawling to the mother’s pouch, attaching to a teat and to suckle milk. All subsequent life in a pouch ensures warmth, protection, transport and nourishment. The Echidna is an extraordinary animal and the journey from egg to pouch is fascinating.Join us as Les shares his amazing knowledge of these unique animals
