Can we just admire the platypus for a moment?? Look at this fucking animal. Evolution created a fucking mammal with the body of a MOLE, the eyes of a FISH, the beak of a DUCK, the feet of an OTTER, and the tail of a BEAVER. It LAYS EGGS, it’s fucking VENEMOUS, and it can SENSE ELECTRIC FIELDS to catch its prey. You may ask: “What the fuck, nature?” and you would be entirely justified. When European scientists first discovered the animal, they thought it was a taxidermist’s hoax. As it is, the platypus remains an ecological enigma, and to many, a joke. But the platypus does not need your approval. Behold, the mighty platypus.
