The Green Planet Dubai welcomes the Region’s first two Echidnas this Easter

First Echidnas in the Region!. One of the only two, egg-laying mammals in the world!

Short-beaked Echidna
Tachyglossus aculeatu 

Some other fun facts about the piranha that you may not believe:

  • Echidnas belong to the group of animals called Monotremes. This is the only group of mammals that lay eggs to reproduce
  • Females will lay a single egg into their pouch and after 10 days, a baby echidna, called a Puggle will hatch
  • Puggles are born hairless but after 7 weeks they will start to develop their spines which are composed of keratin
  • Their bodies are covered in fur and spines, and they have a long and sensitive snout and very long tongue to help locate and eat a variety of insects
  • Although they have spines like a porcupine and a pouch like a koala, they are not directly related to either of those. Instead, their closest relative is the Duck-billed Platypus, another monotreme

Dubai’s very own tropical rainforest to be the new home of the region’s first two echidnas.

In celebration of Easter, guests will be able to meet the egg-laying echidnas from 5 April onwards in a special meet and greet along with a Biologist Talk The Green planet to host Easter Egg Hunt for children and adults .
