They are small brown mammals that appear primarily in the snow levels.
, the echidnas look more like porcupines, and are a lighter shade of brown.
N. Sane Trilogy
The echidnas attack by releasing the needles out of their back and running back and forth. While the echidnas' needles are out, the player must avoid jumping on or spinning the enemy away.
There are brief moments when the echidna withdraws the needles from its back, allowing the player to jump on them or spin them away without getting into any harm. The player can also slide into an echidna in order to defeat them at any time. He will not take any damage during this method, even when the echidna's needles are out.
An Echidna ready to attack Crash.
