Project Noah is a tool to explore and document wildlife and a platform to harness the power of citizen scientists everywhere.
They live in a root system on the edge of a river close to my house.
They only come out at in early morning and late afernoon.
Don't worry "Argy Bee"... Like me and so much others, you just tried help and correct something that seems wrong ;)
Desculpe Leonardo. Você está correto.
"Argy Bee" no.. I said that do'nt are "marsupials", it are "monotremes". I agree (and I know) that Platypus are mammals... But not "marsupials".And you're welcome "David22" ;)
I love Platypus !!! They are gorgeous !!! Fantastic..
thanks for that i've fixed that up
Leonardo, monotremes are a sub-group of mammals so platypus are mammals.
"David22", you put the "Platypus" in the mission "Marsupials of the World", but the Platyus don't are Marsupials. It are "monotremes".
You're so lucky David22 to see one in the wild ! thanks for sharing.
..adwaitnaravane... yes. It is hard to find.
Is this photo is caught in eastern australia,because it is manly found there.
It's so cute
Platypuses are really, really cool!
quite right there was a Vietnam war veteren whom picked one up and got pricked. He spent 3 days in hospital under a lot of pain that he said was worse than being shot.
They are so loveable ... but I heard an interesting comment from a national parks ranger the other day... he said the spur on the males gives pain far worse than any other stinging-biting creature he knows of... and apparently it lasts for many, many days
How can you not love them!!!!
Well done David on catching these shy little guys :)
