Baby Platypus

Baby Platypus are amazing and somewhat bizarre looking animals.  The are classified as mammals, have a duck bill, lay eggs, have a beavers tail, are otter footed,  and are one of the only venomous mammals.  Oddly cute as babies though!

    These are not naked flat nosed rats… Never even heard of a naked falt nosed rat. Are you thinking of naked mole rats?

    Those things are ugly.

    They are really cute… as they are, in nature. Amy think a litlle. It is a crime to keep these animals away from where they belong. Just keep your precious dog and forget the wild creatures. We can not be so selfish. Just because we adore them, it doesn’t gives us the right to keep them away from their happiness.

    They are sooo cute! But you would probably like to know the platypus is not the only venomous mammal (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venomous_mammals) and not the only mammals who lay eggs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monotreme) although both are VERY rare. They sure are unique little guys! And I think they make adorable babies! ^.^

    ACTUALLY, Monotremes are mammals that lay eggs instead of giving birth to live young like marsupials and placental mammals.
