Echidnas, sometimes known as spiny anteaters, are a type of egg-laying mammal. The four extant species, together with the platypus, are the only surviving members of that order and are the only extant mammals that lay eggs. Although their diet consists largely of ants and termites, they are no more closely related to the true anteaters of the Americas than to any other placental mammal. They live in Australia and New Guinea. The echidnas are named after a monster in ancient Greek mythology.
The Black and Rufous Elephant Shrew (Rhynchocyon petersi), also known as the black and rufous sengi, is one of 17 species of elephant shrew found only in Africa. Like other members of the genus Rhynchocyon, it is a relatively large species, with adults averaging about 28 cm (11 in) in length and 450-700 g (1.0-1.5 lb) in weight. It is native to Kenya and Tanzania. It eats insects (beetles, termites, ants) and spiders, supplementing this with fruits and seeds.
Different types of termites are found all over the world. They have different rates of destruction and often different patterns of destructive behavior. All termites live in colonies and serve their nest’s greater good. You can count on some types destroying a home in just a few months while others eat at a slower rate and give you a few years before the damage is overwhelming.
