    I have a friend who says these things horrify him. I think they're actually kind of cute.

    I literally thought the exact same thing: kind of cute, and they rule. I could see how they'd be odd, but certainly not horrifying. What are they going to do? BILL you to death? It's not even really a beak.
     
  4. Ah, yes, the animal made of leftovers. Part duck, part beaver, part rat, part chicken. ALL MAMMAL BABY!!:D

    Rock on

    I would be freaked out. I hear their venom can leave you in excruciating pain for months.

    I'd like for once to see one in person. I've only seen them on TV.

    I heard they shoot venomous darts. That's kind scary, but it doesn't outdue the cuteness.

    I bet it taste good.
     
  12. Platypuses rule. They're smaller than you think (well, they were smaller than I expected). They're really fast and feed on Yabbies (Australian freshwater crayfish). Only the male has a venomous spur on its hind legs. Not deadly, but apparently mighty painful.

    I miss living in Australia.

    Creepy because they're always found dead beside(or on) the road?

    I heard they breathe fire and can impersonate the sound of the voice of their victim's mothers.

    Like how to safely cross roadways.


    Jaywalking ends lives! Why can't the animal kingdom come to accept this!

    I heard that they urinate acid and defecate small stones.
     
  19. I think they're cute too- what a crazy mixup of a critter though!

    That said, the otters are my crew.
