The echidna's spines are used for defence. Very few other animal species will attempt to eat an echidna because of its sharp spines.
The echidna, like the platypus, is unusual because it lays eggs, rather than producing live young.
The echidna is a monotreme. It is an egg-laying mammal.

The platypus and the echidna are unusual mammals because they are egg-laying mammals. All other mammals give live birth, but the echidna and the platypus belong to a unique group known as monotremes, which give live birth but still nurture their young on mothers' milk, which is the defining characteristic of a mammal.
It is unlikely that the Australian Aborigines eat cooked echidna nowadays, but they certainly used to, when they still lived a traditional lifestyle.
