SPOT PLATYPUS IN THE WILD Shy, elusive, easily frightened and creatures of dawn and dusk, the Platypus is notorious for being nearly impossible to spot in the wild. We stay at Broken River Mountain Resort, situated on the bank of Broken River it is the place to stay for ultimate access to the Platypus.

Duckbill Platypus I love these animals - As an Aussie and a writer, I remember seeing them as a kid. I even have a grouchy one in my new PB , "Oscar is Different--but he wears glasses!!

The platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus) is a semiaquatic mammal endemic to eastern Australia, including Tasmania. Together with the 4 species of echidna, it is 1 of the 5 extant species of monotremes, the only mammals that lay eggs instead of giving birth. The unusual appearance of this egg-laying, duck-billed, beaver-tailed, otter-footed mammal baffled naturalists. It is one of the few venomous mammals, the male platypus has a spur on the hind foot that delivers a painful venom.
