The Duckbill Platypus lives in Australia.

Platypuses are able to swim in the water and walk on land.

Platypuses have thick, dark fur that keeps them warm.

This dark color of their fur also makes Duckbill Platypuses hard to see in the water.

The feet of the Duckbill Platypus are webbed while they are in the water to help them swim, but once they start to walk on land the webbing folds into their feet.

Both male and female Platypuses have little claws on their ankles that helps them to protect against predators.
