The Platypus is a strange little mammal which, by being adaptable and swift, recreated itself to adapt to the changing circumstances and therefore survived while all other life around it was extinguished.

Platypuses are not sure of their genre.  They have fur and lactate, like a mammal; have a bill and webbed feet, like a bird; lay eggs and produce venom, like a reptile; and find their prey using electroreception, like sharks. They are equally at home in land or water.

The platypus is so weird that when first described, many scientists assumed that it was a hoax.

Wishing to have the same cunning ability to adapt to my new surroundings and enjoy this Ozzie adventure, I have chosen the platypus as my totem during the journey 😉
