The Guardian reports that platypus milk has a novel chemical structure that could be used to fight superbugs.

If you read the article you will learn yet another delightful platypus fact, which is:

Platypus and echidnas are monotremes, the only mammals that lay eggs instead of giving birth to live young. They don’t have teats, so the mothers express their milk onto their bellies for their young to feed.

Happy Platypus Friday!
