What is the animal Platypus known for?

The platypus is a remarkable animal that is known for its unique features and adaptations.

It is one of the few mammals that lay eggs, and the only one that has a bill like a duck, feet like a otter, and taile like a beaver.

It is also one of the few venomous mammals, as the males have spurs on their hind legs that can inject a painful toxin.

The platypus lives in freshwater streams and rivers in eastern Australia and Tasmania, where it hunts for aquatic prey using its sensitive bill and a special electroreception sense.

The platypus is a symbol of Australia's biodiversity and has been featured on coins, stamps, and logos.

It is also a subject of scientific interest and curiosity, as it belongs to a very ancient group of mammals called monotremes.
