The platypus is one of the most unusual creatures in the animal kingdom. Platypuses have a paddle-shaped tail like a beaver, a furry body like an otter, and webbed feet like a duck. In fact, the first time a platypus was brought from Australia to Britain, people could not believe that it was a real animal.

Platypuses make their homes in the freshwater areas. While they are in the water a lot, they will also waddle onto the riverbanks to dig burrows with their claws. These burrows are tunnels that have rooms or chambers. Platypuses also live under rock ledges, roots, or debris.

Platypuses weather many climate extremes. Their waterproof, thick fur keeps them warm in chilly temperatures, and their big tails store extra fat for energy. Platypuses usually sleep during the day and hunt at night. They hunt for their food in the water where they live.
