I also wouldn't be brave enough to correct a zoologist
The reason that I thought anteater was also because of the snout and I saw a tongue sticking out, but then I looked up an adult pic of an anteater and saw that they have decent sized ears, which the baby seemed to lack. Everyone else said echidna so a quick google of "baby echidna pics" pulled up the one that looks JUST like the one posted.
