Platypus

Jackie & Zoey

The platypus belongs to the smallest mammal order in the world; the monotremes or egg-laying mammals. The only other member of this exclusive club is another Australian, the echidna. Found only in eastern Australia, the platypus makes burrows in the steep banks of creeks and rivers and hunts for small prey such as shellfish, fish, tadpoles and insect larvae in deep pools.
