So cute! First baby puggles for nearly 30 years born at Australian zoo

Taronga Zoo is celebrating the first birth in 30 years of three puggles - mammals that start off looking like a mole then develop spines like a hedgehog. The short-beaked echidnas, part of a group called monotremes, are difficult to breed but these three were hatched from 16-30 August. The babies have opened their eyes and started developing their characteristic spines but spend most of the time asleep at the moment.
