112 million years? Amazing!
Re: Platypus by mrsthing on 22 January 2008 5:47pm
Wow. To think such an odd species has survived for so long! I think they're way cool: a mammal with a duckbill that lays eggs and suckles its young and has a poisonous stinger. Makes you wonder what god was smoking the day he created them!

Well, it's a funny idea, god smoking dope and making this crazy creature.

112 million years is amazing. LOL! God smoking dope. Maybe s/he was tired. Tough work creating the universe.
Their snouts look as though they were nailed on.

That platypus is an interesting creature alright. Seeing them helps put the diversity of God's creatures in perspective: these animals have diversity in reproductive systems and habitat that are considered unusual. The human animal has diversity in much simpler, man-made characteristics as religions or other ideals. Will humans survive 112 million years?

So now we know why Vancouver Island is called God's country by those who love it here! Maybe they should refer to it as God's greenhouse.

Maybe aliens brought them from a planet far far away.

And Vancouver Island has unpeckable jeans.

Unbelievable! Fascinating animals. Quite cute.

Yes, that's so interesting. And aren't they lovely! 'Duck-billed Platypus' was a joke animal when I was at school (long time ago) - what an insult to beautiful creatures.
