The Platypus


If I only saw the beak,would I believe it too be a duck,
If I only saw the tail,would I believe it too be a beaver,
If I only felt it's claws,would I only belive it too be a predator...

The Platypus is an enigma of nature,since
distinguishing the heads or tail of anything...can be difficult
