On this adventure Mark is in Western Australia for the first time tracking down a living spike ball and one of Australia’s most endangered species. First, he shows you why it’s not a good idea to hold Australia’s spikiest creature, as he's spiked by the Echidna! Covered from head to tail with thick spines this animal’s self-defense gives Mark a hand full of pain trying to present its other interesting features. Then he sets off to find one of the last living relatives of the extinct Tasmanian Tiger, the Numbat. Will he find one? Watch and find out! Do you have any endangered species that live by you? If so, tell us about them in the comments and what you would do to save them from going extinct. Who knows, depending on your idea we might come out to film an adventure with you!
