Cluney was named after the area where he was found wandering near a main road, disorientated and dehydrated, in the northern rivers town of Clunes in New South Wales.
At the tender age of five months, Cluney is still supposed to be safe in the burrow being fed and tended to by his mother. But for some reason, this little Echidna felt compelled to venture out into the world.
After being taken to Lismore veterinary clinic for an examination and x-ray, this lucky puggle is now in the hands of experienced WIRES carer, Leoni. While there was nothing found to be wrong with Cluney physically, he required immediate rehydration and feeding.
Leoni sent us this short video which shows Cluney drinking his special Echidna formula.
We’re hoping he’ll be ready to head back into the area where he was found, in May. This is normally the time of year when young Echidnas leave the burrow and find their independence.
