Comments

Issued by the RAM in a tall Coincard in 2008 is this NCLT Pad Printed/Colourised Reverse Frosted $1 Aluminium-bronze coin. It is part of the six coin Land Animals Series of coins issued in individual Coincards in 2008-2009.



Echidnas are the only mammals aside from the Platypus that lay egs. Baby Echidnas are called Puggles. They hatch from the egg after ten days then live inside the mother's pouch for about 50 days, feeding on her milk.
