On this episode of Breaking Trail, Coyote attempts to pickup and hold one of the spiniest creatures on the planet…the Echidna!

Native to Australia, Echidnas are one of only two mammals in the world that actually lay eggs! Is that unique or what?!

In addition to laying eggs, and for being the inspiration to Sonic’s sidekick “Knuckles”, they are also notorious for their extremely spiky coat of quills. Much thicker and longer than that of a hedgehog these spears turn otherwise adorable creatures into living pin cushions! They are defiantly not something you’d just want to pickup on a whim, that's for sure.

That said, in today’s video that’s exactly what Coyote Peterson will attempt to do…hold an Echidna without wearing any gloves! Yikes!

Get ready meet a living ball of spikes!
