Watch: Man Hand Feeding & Playing With A Friendly Platypus

Imagine spending a day with one of Australia’s most iconic yet enigmatic creatures – the platypus!

In this delightful video that has captured hearts worldwide, we get an up-close and personal look at a friendly platypus.

While the video is undeniably cute and brings a smile, it also opens up a fascinating world about this unique mammal.

Platypuses are known for their peculiar appearance, but did you know they are one of the few mammals that lay eggs?

Female platypuses lay eggs, and the young, known as puggles, hatch after about ten days.

The mother nourishes them with her milk, secreted through the skin, as platypuses do not have nipples.

The playful platypus in the video has warmed our hearts and piqued our curiosity about the species.
