Story of the art:
Bigibilla is the Aboriginal – (Gamilaraay nation) word for echidna. This painting represents information and the lifecycle of a short beaked echidna.
Echidnas are egg laying mammals, called monotremes, and grow to a length of 30-52cm in length and weigh 2-7kg. Its snout is 7-8cm long and used to poke into rotten logs and termite mounds. It also has a very long and sticky tongue to collect its food, such as ants or termites.
An echidna lays one egg into her pouch (see the egg at the bottom of the echidna). The baby echidna will be about the size of a jelly bean when it hatches and is called a puggle. It hatches from the egg after about 7-10 days (10 dots around the egg) and is born blind and hairless.
It stays inside the pouch for 2-3 months (3 moons around the egg), and when it starts to grow spines it moves to a burrow (see the baby echidna at the bottom), where it stays for around 12 months (12 circles in the burrow area).
An echidnas spines are made from keratin, which is the same stuff that makes up fur, claws, nails and horns. Their spines are long, tough, hollow hair follicles.
When the echidna is fully grown it will live in the wild for around 10 years (10 sun symbols around the echidna).
Echidna feet are very unique, with the hind feet facing backwards. This allows the echidna to protect itself from predators, it can dig very fast and bury itself so only its spines are exposed (see the echidna footprints at the top).
The echidna is distributed all over Australia and southern New Guinea, the colours in the background represent colours found from inland country to the coast.
