Echidna skeleton

In her early university days at Dundee College, Mary Lily Walker was a keen biologist.  Guess what she worked on:  the skeletons of echidna, otherwise known as a spiny anteater. This is what one looks like.  This particular specimen is from the Darcy Thompson Museum at the University of Dundee.  Maybe she even worked on this very skeleton!
