Platypus are an unusual animal similar to the Echidna, they are mammals that lay eggs, albeit rubbery type eggs rather than shelled eggs. They have a bill, webbed toes on four feet, fur and a tail. They are aquatic and burrow above the water line often up to 20 metres long in which they lay their eggs and rear their young. Since Australia only has the two species of monotremes I have not included a separate gallery for the platypus here/
