That is truly a weirdd creature, Nick...Did you also know it's claws can also secrete a poison-type substance that can possibly kill you?It almost did kill an Australian man some years ago. Saw it on a documentary on the world's most poisonous creatures on Animal Planet.
I don;t know if the original comment I made went through, but I was saying...To repeat...Did you know, Nick, that the platypus claws can secrete a poison-type substance that could kill you?It almost killed an Australian man some years ago. Saw it on Animal Planet. Good link, Nick!!!
No, I didn't know that - definitely a unique animal!
Gotta love the platypus! It's one of my favorite "go-to" examples of a known creature that on appearance, is just too strange to be real.For an example of a freaky member of the plant kingdom, do a google search on "amorphophallus titanum"!
