Why the platypus is considered a chimera

It has a duck's bill, a beaver's tail, and an otter's fur. Oh and it also lays eggs. Meet the platypus, one of the strangest mammals in the animal kingdom.

    Years ago, near the Paddy River falls, I watched a platypus swimming to and from its burrow in a river pond. The tranquility of the pond and its surrounds gave me a feeling of serenity, until I dropped my bloody camera in the river.
