    They also make good secret agents.

    “Zen like concentration”… so funny it hurts!

  7. Jan says:

    More Platypii!

  8. Ilkka Laukkanen says:

    Don’t forget the venom. That’s a platypus exclusive.

    • Llyra says:

      Yes! Venomous spurs!

    • JSug says:

      Came here to say this. I can’t believe you left it out! When I was in middle school we each had to do a presentation on an animal of our choice for science class. I chose the platypus, and had the most interesting presentation by far. They’re just so freaking weird.

    • Doug says:

      Ah! yes, the venomous barbs! I knew it was SOMETHING like that. On a related note, I might be wrong about that whole shooting-lasers-from-its-eyes thing…

      • Hillel Kitty says:

        Hunh – I always thought it was venomous stare and spur-mounted lasers. Got that backwards; darn you Uncyclopedia!!

    I had to google ogden nash, platypus; some long ago memory stirring in my brain. Sure enough, “The Platypus” by Ogden Nash. I wasn’t crazy; rather, parts of my mind still function! HAGD!

  10. Ronnie says:

    I love it! it’s my favourite animal (I have tons of platypus drawing lying around…) 🙂
    Keep them coming!

  11. Don says:

    I didn’t know platipii, platipuses, platipusies, shot lasers from eyes? Maybe it poops like a rabbit, too.

  12. Andrea says:

    Yes, I second the venom. Don’t forget about the articulating poisonous spurs. Platypus’s are like little KGB agents. How darling.

  13. Pehter says:

    Now I hope we get to see a new series and new website , !!!
    and their Zen Lessons, or whatever

  14. Luiz says:

    i knew they were hiding something! now i know its the lasers!

  15. willwot says:

    Give it a cape and it could fly. Look! Up in the sky! It’s a duck! It’s a beaver! No it’s super platypus!

  16. Tony Bond says:

    Flies like a Chupacabra,
    Dances like Fred Astaire… 😉

  17. Jared says:

    I love that platypii are venomous. It’s like they weren’t weird enough without it. It reminds me of a quiz Defective Yeti had on his website: What Venomous Egg-Laying Mammal Are You?

  18. willwot says:

    This is no ordinary useless mutant

  19. Bryan says:

    Platypuses and ducks have bills, not beaks.

  20. Carl Klutzke says:

    Ilkka beat me to it, but yes, the male platypus is the only venomous mammal: they have spurs on their hind legs.

  21. Jenn says:

    You forgot the poisonous barbs on it’s ankles, which the males use during mating and contain over 80 toxins.

  22. Lina says:

    How could you forget the poisonous barbs on his feet??!

  23. zootsuit says:

    ESP? That explains how Platy knew I was taking him to the vet to have his laser eyes fixed.

    (Laser Eye Surgery….HA)

  24. fluffy says:

    One of my pet peeves is how everyone seems to think that a platypus has a beaver’s tail. It doesn’t! There isn’t even a remote resemblance! Look at a picture of a real platypus someday. (And, while we’re on the subject, their bill isn’t really a bird beak. It just bears a superficial resemblance to a duck bill.)

    Also the ESP is probably in reference to their sense of electroreception – they can feel electrical currents being generated by their prey’s muscle contractions. Very cool. Not ESP though.

  25. anne says:

    I am madly in love with your platypus cartoons!

  26. Mat says:

    And they are venomous too! They have a crazy venom (delivered by a spike on their leg) that while non-lethal, cause hypersensitivity to pain (a paper cut feels like an amputation) and even morphine doesn’t help. I love the platypus!

  27. Aaanx says:

    Aaaah, the Chuck Norris of the animal world (with in-built spurs), I used to save them from fishing nets as a kid, you don’t see many nowadays.

  28. Lewis says:

    He forgot the poisonous part.

  29. kristina says:

    Obviously, many people don’t read the other comments before they make their own comment (can you say, “duh, someone already said that”?), and then there are the commentors with no sense of humour… why are they here? 🙁

    Oh well, MOST of us appreciated the cartoon for its face-value as well as underlying humour.

    Keep the “Platterpusses” coming! I sense they will be back… 😉

  30. Kate says:

    I want a T-shirt!

  31. Ke1234 says:

    I would get one,but to protect myself from lasers it would be $100,000 a second and that’s 50% off!
    Maybe I could get the lasers removed.
    Oh,wait! They grow back…
