Most mammals have a fairly conventional and recognizable shape and appearance, but some at first glance almost defy classification. One of the most bizarre of all mammals is the duck-billed platypus of Australia. As an egg-laying mammal it is odd enough..

They may look odd, but they are beautiful. Wonderful images of them. They are one of the most unusual of all of our many strange creatures. Thank you Andrija for bring this little known animal to our attention. They are very special. Great Post! Noted and tweeted.

Oooohhhh I LOVE Manatees. I think of them as the aquatic equivalent to another firm favourite of mine, the sloth.
Thanks for sharing this, the photo with the Manatee looking directly at the camera is spectacular! :-)

Love the Manatees too, they look so sweet, and the platypus is cute in its weird way. They are unique
