A platypus is very interesting animal in many different ways. One strange fact is that their beaks are called bills. Their beak is very flat and rubbery like jello. The platypus has a beak like a duck, and a tail like a beaver, and can you believe it lays eggs! It is a very unusual animal in Australia. It is an egg laying marsupial which is very strange. It has webbed feet like a water frog to swim underwater. This is why I think the platypus is a very interesting animal of Australia.
