What’s An Echidna Train ?

Delightfully named ‘Echidna Trains’ consist of a line of 3-5 male echidnas following a female in an orderly, nose-to-tail fashion, often over quite large distances.   These echidna trains engage in activities such as walking, foraging for food, and resting together as a group.   This behaviour is an important part of the echidnas breeding ritual and can continue for up to six weeks until the winning echidna suitor (usually the largest male) is the ‘last one standing’ with the female.  

When Does An Echidna Train Happen?

Echidna Trains occur during echidnas winter breeding season, from May until the end of September.
