Platypuses or Platypi?


How do you say platypus in the plural form?  Just curious.  I've been stuck on them lately, and I grow to love them more every day.  They have fur, sport webbed feet, lay eggs, are poisonous, and are nocturnal.  My brother told me recently that the platypus is a monotreme.  Here is a baby one.



My daughter has been fascinated with the platypus, too.  Perry the Platypus from Phineas and Ferb is one of her favorite characters.


I found this adorable plush toy on Pinterest.


Crocheted platypus, anyone.


How cute is the necklace?  Check out this etsy store, called marymary handmade.  If you are interested in odd animals, you'll love all of her necklaces.

I used to love platypus. I found out they are poisonous and they became less cute to me at that time. I did a report on them in middle school sometime and my fascination lasted for awhile. They are cute animals.

I found you on MomBlogSociety.

Found your blog via MBS.

I can remember writing a report on platypuses when I was in elementary school. I had a fascination with them too. Must be the duck bill.
