Nyingarn (Nyoongar for echidna) and Babbin (Nyoongar for friend) are two recent births in the Perth Zoo's echidna breeding program.
Echidnas are monotremes
, mammals that lay eggs. These puggles weighed less than one gram each when they hatched in August and spent their first two months in their mothers’ pouch.
