Yeah, we know what you’re thinking: Platypus are not known for being the world’s cutest animals. But just look at this thing swim around! It likes to be tickled! It’s fulfilling our fantasy of having our very own Psyduck!

You can find this sweetie at the Healesville Sanctuary in Victoria.

PS “Platypus” and “platypuses” are acceptable plural forms, but “platypi” is technically incorrect as the Greek form would be “platypodes.” The more you know.
