It resides in Australia and New Guinea, residing in a variety of habitats including grasslands, forests, coasts, and in agricultural areas. This species was first described in 1792 by George Shaw, who named it Myrmecophaga aculeate, believing it to be a relative of the anteater. Its name has changed four times since its first...
