The platypus is one of the most interesting creatures ever to come out of Mother Nature's workshop. It's a huge slap in the face to the very foundations and theories of biological design and it's bizarre, almost 'Far Side-esque' design makes it one of the cuter and more amusing stops at any local zoo. This twisted creation of nature and genetics was given its own day of honor, along with the groundhog, the pig and the turkey (although, technically, that's Thanksgiving).
Last Saturday, the Internet turned the world into Happy Platypus Day to celebrate this strange but beloved creature of the animal kingdom. These videos about this bizarre but beloved animal can help even the most ignorant platypus lover pay homage to this duck-billed wonder.
