The Hobart Rivulet Platypus.

So I saw this on Facebook and got curious. Read the article on the ABC (Australia, not US) link and watch the video below to see how they move.

Pete Walsh is called the ‘platypus whisperer’ by his partner Vonna Keller and it all stems from his relationship with a female platypus they’ve named Zoom. They live in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia.

“He’s on a mission to make sure the urban platypus in Hobart are protected from here on out and that they’re not struggling for survival because numbers are dropping off right round Australia,”
