Rare white echidna found in western Qld
A grazier has found a rare albino echidna near Tambo, south-east of Longreach in western Queensland.

Grazier John Jones from south of Tambo came across the white echidna on a property he manages, saying he has never seen anything like it.

He took it to the local school to show children and teachers.

"I don't know whether the smaller children realise the significance that they may never seen one ever again," he said.

"All its points - its toenails and little face - is pink, the quills are completely white.

"It seems to have a white fur on the body covering, under the quills.

"I have not come across anyone yet who has seen one."

Mr Jones says he has now released the echidna back into the bush
