A rare albino echidna has been released after being rescued on the outskirts of Canberra, Australia.
‘Casper’ was found by the side of a busy road two weeks ago, and has been recuperating with carers since.
His new home is Tidbinbilla, a protected nature reserve away from traffic, where it is hoped he will find a mate.
Echidnas are egg-laying mammals which use their long noses and tongues to eat ants and termites.
Brett McNamara, Australian Capital Territory Parks and Conservation Ranger, explains the rare find.
