In many ways that is actually true. So, here is a picture from my world - if you see one of these in the wild you are in Australia - or very close to it. This is an echidna - or as I was taught as a kid in biology a spiny anteater. If you dont know, this is a mammal that lays eggs and has hip bones like a reptile. But it has fur, feeds the young that hatch from the eggs on milk and is "warm blooded". There are only two other species of animals in the world remotely like it - the platypus and a much larger species of echidna.
So for your view of my world I give you that most Australian of Australians - Tachglossus aculeatus!
