Pelorus in the Press

The Telegraph

We’re thrilled to see Pelorus’ Australian experiences featured in The Telegraph, print and online, by Sarah Marshall.

‘It is no wonder echidnas have managed to outlive most animals. Able to survive bushfires by curling up and disappearing underground, these prickly balls have developed impressive survival strategies. Find the short-beaked species poking their 6in-long tongues into ants’ nests at the Arkaba Conservancy in the Flinders Ranges, a five-hour drive from Adelaide, where wildlife can be observed on game drives, on walks or from purpose-built hides. Between mid-May and September, you may be lucky enough to see an “echidna train”, where several suitors trailing a female eventually surround her to create a love bed by digging a trench.’
