A Paddle of Platypuses

One of the most distinctive animals on earth, the platypus is a monotreme, a mammal that lays eggs but also nurses its young with milk. It sports the tail of a beaver, the body of an otter, and the bill and webbed feet of a duck. Their bill gives them a “sixth sense” by enabling them to detect electrical fields from all living things around them. Their skeletons resemble those of reptiles. They are carnivorous, yet they have no stomach. Male platypuses are one of the few venomous mammals, bearing a poisonous spur on each of their back feet.
