An adorable one-year-old platypus found himself stuck in a sewage treatment plant in Australia’s New South Wales. The little guy took a wrong turn down a pipe … quite possibly in pursuit of his girlfriend.
But I’m happy to say the rescue effort to free him was a success, and the lucky platypus is expected to make a full recovery. Once he gets a clean bill of health, he’ll be released back into the wild.
