Can I rush to correct a howler in my last post before anyone else does?

An echidna is of course a monotreme, _not_ a marsupial.  It accordingly lays
eggs, just like the even more adorable platypus (a so far unclaimed
potential Vironese name).  (Marsupials like kangaroos and wombats have live
young which they suckle in pouches).  Echidnas also eat ants and roll into a
ball when threatened.

Does any of this sound like our fearsome goddess?  I think not.
