This is a thread to show appreciation for this aberration of nature, here we can discuss this duck-billed, beaver-tailed, otter-footed mammal that lays eggs.

No close relatives in the animal kingdom, correct?

It makes so much sense...

The majestic platypus. An aberration created in the image of the great Cthulhu himself.
 
Probing Platypus Evolution

National Geographic researchers are trying to collect DNA samples from these odd duck-billed mammals to determine whether there are separate subspecies.
 
Platypi are the original species. It was they who crawled forth from the primordial soup, who's hair drifted across the four winds and bred life on this planet like a thousand lovely spores, and it was the Platypus who constructed the precursor to human DNA with its own bare hands. ALL HAIL THE CREATORS.
 
Truth is stranger than fiction it would seem. :shr:

Who needs mermaids and centaurs when you have a beady-eyed duck-beaver thingy.
 
The more I read up on these creatures, the more shocked I am. They're venomous, they have electrolocation among other things. It's like they originated on another planet!
 
There's a reason the platypus is the OFFICIAL national animal of Hypelantis. :atp:
 
I just can't imagine how that would even work...which was the father and which was the mother?
 
I just saw the episode of South Park where Damien turned Kenny into a humanoid duckbill platypus.
 
So... What powers do you get when you are bitten by a venomous, irradiated platypus?
 
Whoever wins the JJJ's Ulcer vs Spider-Aziz Deathmatch, will be knighted by the holy Platypus.
