Monotremes are mammals that lay eggs, a highly unusual thing for mammals to do. (Mammals, such as dogs and bears and humans, give birth to live young.)

Only two types of monotremes exist today: the duck-billed platypus and the spiny anteater, or echidna. Both are native to Australia and New Guinea. Adult females lay one to three eggs and incubate them for nine to 12 days until the young break free from the shells. Then they nurse the babies as dogs or bears or humans would.

Wow, I guess it's true, for every rule there is an exception!

That second one looks like it might be related to a porcupine!
