Wikipedia article

This article is about the current version of DF.
A small spiny mammal with a long snout. It eats ants and termites and reproduces by laying eggs.

Echidnas are small solitary creatures found in most temperate biomes and deserts. They are benign meanderers, fleeing from any dwarf who attempts to confront them and generally not standing any chance against even the most inexperienced of hunters. Their bodies are covered in spines (which don't actually hurt to touch), and when threatened, they curl into a ball to defend themselves. A baby echidna is called a puggle, who are notably born as tiny as ants.

Echidnas can be captured in cage traps and trained into exotic pets. As monotremes, they lay eggs to give birth and as such can be placed in a nest box, though they only lay a single egg at a time. In terms of butchering returns, they are only slightly better than cats, making them overall poor animals for a meat industry or egg production.

Some dwarves like echidnas for their spines and their egg-laying.

Bugs

If a curled up or retracted creature dies and is then reanimated by a necromancer, it retains the effects of being curled up but can move and attack as normal. As result undead echidna can fight forever<ref>http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/mantisbt/view.php?id=11463</ref>.

It combines well with http://www.bay12games.com/dwarves/mantisbt/view.php?id=10519 that allows curled up undead to attack.

As result undead echidna may at once be curled up (making it unkillable) and move/attack.

The same problem affects also hedgehog and hedgehog man.

Admired for its spines.
