Platypus Friday takes a turn for the jawesome this week, as I got not just one, but two random unsolicited platypus links! How great is that?

The photo above was sent to me by the lovely Lisa. It needs no further comment.

And in a much bigger surprise, Ashin Sopāka from Bangkok, Thailand, sends me a link to a BBC article about a platypus trapped in sewage pipes looking for mate. Thank you, Ashin Sopāka!

You really need to follow the link above because it’s a pretty lovely video.

A few thoughts:

  • platypus swimming is about as ridiculous as you might imagine
  • platypus are a lot flatter than you might imagine
  • the proper place to hold a platypus is right underneath its tail

So there you have it. If you have platypus stuff, send them to me. I’ll make sure they get the proper amounts of attention.

        Happy Platypus Friday!
