Echidnas are shy creatures and move slowly and carefully. If disturbed they roll into a ball or vigorously dig into the ground so that only the spines are exposed. They have short limbs and powerful claws. They mainly eat ants and termites, but other invertebrates especially grubs, larvae and worms can be a part of their diet.
