Prickles is a green echidna with many sharp quills, hence his name. He wears purple ski goggles, and he in fact does enjoy skiing. He enjoys other sports as well, having sort of a daredevil-like personality.
Like real-life echindas, he likes to eat ants. However, he almost always fails to catch ants and they end up killing him in some disturbing manner.
