The Platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus) has a fleshy bill resembling that of a duck, dense fur, webbed feet, and a broad flattened tail. called also duck-billed platypus It is a unique Australian mammal species. Along with echidnas (Australia's spiny 'ant-eaters'), Platypuses are grouped in a separate order of mammals known as monotremes, which are distinguished from all other mammals because they lay eggs. Platypus make their home in and near freshwater creeks, slow-moving rivers, lakes joined by rivers, and built water storages such as farm dams. They build a simple burrow in a river bank, just above water level and often among a tangle of tree roots.
I have been thrilled to see many Platypuses over time, mainly swrimming across the surface of quiet, deep, freshwater ponds on bushy farmland in Tasmania.
