Bubbles the echidna came to the RSPCA Wildlife Hospital after a very unfortunate incident with a car. The impact of the car damaged the tip of his beak – he was very lucky to escape with only this injury.
However an echidna’s beak is vital to their food consumption, so poor Bubbles if left in the wild, wouldn’t have been able to forage properly, and he may very well have starved.
Luckily, a good samaritan brought him in and we were able to give him the necessary treatment, and free food.
Once his beak had healed, we released him back to his home. Lucky little Bubbles.
