Description

The Platypus is among nature’s most unlikely animals, classed a Monotreme, or egg laying mammal. In fact, the first scientists to examine a specimen believed they were the victims of a hoax. The animal is best described as a hodgepodge of more familiar species: the duck (bill and webbed feet), beaver (tail), and otter (body and fur). The Male platypus is one of the few living mammals to produce venom.Males have a pair of spurs on their back limbs that secrete venom only in their breeding season.
