Echidnas were likely named after Echidna, a creature half-woman, half-snake in the Greek mythology. Echidnas (the animals) were first perceived to have both mammalian AND reptilian features (they are egg-laying mammals** after all). Echidna (the creature) was actually the mother of many famous monsters in the Greek mythology: Cerberus (multi-headed dog guarding the underworld... or the Philosopher's stone?🙃), the Chimera, or the Hydra... What a lovely family!
