The short-beaked echidna (Tachyglossus aculeatus), once called the spiny anteater, is the sole member of its genus and one of four remaining species of echidna. 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...
