Duck-billed Platypus

PlatypusTalk about weird animals: the duck-billed platypus has a beak-like muzzle, webbed feet, a fur-covered body, a flat, beaver-like tail, and eyes on the top of its head. Males have a venom gland and a spine on their hind foot.When swimming under water, these guys keep their eyes closed and nuzzle around in the mud for food.

PlatypusThey are wonderful fun to watch, and the Healesville Sanctuary in Victoria has a really good exhibit!
