Platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus)

  • Platypuses and (or platypodes) grow up to 60cm in length. And are endemic to the east and south-eastern Australia including Tasmania.
  • They are mostly, nocturnal sleeping in chambers at the end of riverbank burrows.
  • It is celebrated as one of Australia’s most unusual mammals and one of only two monotremes in the world, along with the echidna, the only other egg-laying mammal in the world which suckles its young.
  • It is one of the very few venomous mammals in the world, the male possessing a spur on the rear legs.
  • They use electro-reception to locate their prey of mostly invertebrates, including tadpoles, worms, snails and shrimps. The duck-like bill is flexible ruby and feels like suede.
  • Prehistoric platypuses grew much larger and the fossil record includes animals up to 1 metre in length.
