Biodiversity challenge – Echidna

Monotreme sports

A favourite trick
Of my cricket-mad
Pet spiny anteater:
Roll up in a ball
And bowl himself
At the wicket
On my garden wall.
Yesterday,
Getting carried away
During batting practice,
I smacked his spiky frame
Over a neighbour’s fence:
An immense six
To win the game.
You may well disapprove,
But it did improve my
Tame Echidna Average.
