  1. Platypus A semi aquatic egg laying mammal.

  2. Questions and answers We made up some questions and here are the answers.

  3. Question 1: how does a platypus avoid predators the platypus rely on a electro-reception.

  4. Question 2: what will happen when a platypus opens their eyes in water Nothing will happen if a platypus opens its eyes because its eye is protected by a thin, transparent membrane so it can open its eyes without injury.

  5. Question 3 : how much time do platypus spend in water about 2 to 10 minutes.

  11. The bill Helps platypus to find food underwater ,uses grinds plates rather than teeth.

  12. The cheek pouches It uses its cheek pouches for storing its food temporarily ,because it eats on land.

  13. The legs and the feet It uses its feet as paddles to swim better, and when it climbs onto land, the webbed parts of its feet fold back to reveal sharp claws. Also, the males claws are poisonous, while the female claws are not.

  14. The platypuses tail The platypuses tail also helps it swim quickly, it also uses its tail to steer it self as it dives. Oddly, the platypus stores most of its body fat in its tail for winter.

  20. A platypuses length: For a male, fifty to sixty cm, but for a female, she is only forty to fifty cm.

  21. A platypuses life cycle: They(baby platypuses) spend 10 days in the egg, then 24 days before it is properly hatched. After that, the baby platypuses spend several more months with the mother before it is ready to leave her. They reach maturity at the age of two.
