libutron:

Hammerhead worm
This is an unidentified species of a land planarian belonging to the genus Bipalium (Tricladida - Geoplanidae).
Most land planarians are tropical in distribution due to their requirement for hot and humid environments. All are nocturnal in habit and are voracious predators of soft-bodied invertebrates, which are detected via chemical cues and subdued with copious amounts of mucous and an eversible pharynx.

Short-beaked echidna 
The Short-beaked echidna, Tachyglossus aculeatus (Monotrematae - Tachyglossidae), is the most widely distributed endemic Australian mammal, and echidnas from different geographic areas differ so much in appearance that they have been assigned to several subspecies.
This is the tasmanian subspecies, Tachyglossus aculeatus setosus. They look a lot more cuddly and have a lot more hair than the ones on the Australian mainland that are all spines.
Echidnas lay shell covered eggs that hatch outside the mother’s body, and although they do not have teats, secrete milk through several pores in the belly.
