THE PLATYPUS...THEY THOUGHT IT WAS A HOAX

An Iconic Mammal The platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus)



Is an egg-laying, semi-aquatic mammal that lives in Tasmania and along the eastern coast of mainland Australia.
It occupies a wide range of habitats from alpine streams and ponds that freeze in winter, to the tepid waters of tropical north Queensland.

 It uses electro-receptors in its rubbery bill to find food on the bottom of freshwater streams, lakes and ponds.
Males have venomous spurs,
Females secrete milk through their skin, and
their young are born into burrows dug into earth banks

. Some aspects of their skeletons are similar to reptiles. Platypuses are frequently observed in the sometimes rare streams, rivers and lakes of one of the driest continents on the planet, where they often spend about 12 hours a day searching for food.


The platypus is characterised by a

oft, toothless rubbery bill,
webbed feet,
fur and
a single external opening to the urinary, digestive and reproductive tracts.
 
This iconic mammal was so weird that when specimens first reached Europe at the end of the 19th century they were considered fakes.

Since that time platypuses have continued to fascinate scientists and the public alike.


Although many people have never seen one in the wild (due to their secretive and often nocturnal habits), most Australians strongly support their conservation.

Platypus  and echidnas are the only existing species of monotremes (egg laying mammals) on earth

All other mammals are in the subclass Theria and give birth to live young.


Appearance Platypus are readily identified by their


streamlined body, webbed feet, broad tail and characteristic bill, which is rubbery and contains no true teeth.

 Since platypus dive repeatedly for food, they generally are only sighted when they briefly return to the surface to breathe. Then the top of their head, back and tail can be seen – like the tip of an iceberg, the rest remains submerged

An adult platypus can be from 45 cm to 60 cm long, with females generally smaller than males. Average platypus size increases with latitude, with the platypuses in north Queensland generally being the smallest where males average about 1 kg.

Platypuses are usually a deep brown colour on the back and sides of the head, body and upper surfaces of the limbs. The underside is a golden colour or silky grey. They have two layers of fur - a dense waterproof outercoat and a grey woolly underfur to provide insulation. The fur on the broad flat tail is coarse and bristly.


 They have a smooth swimming action, together with a low body profile and no visible ears which makes them easily recognisable in the water. Since platypus legs extend out from the sides of their bodies, they walk with a reptilian waddle, rather than a straight-line gait.

Platypus are semi-aquatic and require access to freshwater habitats to forage, and earth banks to dig their burrows. Ideal platypus habitat includes rivers or streams with earth banks consolidated by the roots of native vegetation, abundant invertebrate prey, cobbled or gravel substrates, overhanging shady vegetation and a sequence of pools and riffles.

However they can also occupy lakes and farm dams and even can be found in some streams moderately degraded by human activities.

Platypus spend around half their day resting in short, oval-shaped burrows of about 3 to 8 m long that they dig into earth banks around rivers, lakes or streams. They often have multiple burrows scattered along their home range and adults typically occupy a burrow alone, although different platypuses may use the same burrow on different days.


 Females also dig elaborate nesting burrows around 20 m long with multiple chambers and earth plugs which they share with their unweaned young.
 Swimming and diving Platypus use their webbed front feet for swimming. On land, the webbing, which extends beyond the long front claws, is folded back to enable the animal to walk and burrow.
Platypus have powerful front legs and rely on them for the hard work of both paddling and digging. The webbing on the hind feet does not extend beyond the bases of the claws; the hind legs are used mainly for steering and to tread water while they chew food at the surface.

 The tail acts as a rudder when swimming and also aids the animal when diving. It is also where the platypus stores much of its body fat. Biologists use the thickness of the tail to measure an individual’s body condition. Although platypus are strong swimmers, they are not fast and prefer slow-flowing streams.

 Senses Platypus have small eyes but acute sight. They only open their eyes above water and are particularly good at detecting movement on the river bank.

Their hearing is also acute, with a range of hearing similar to the frequencies that humans can detect, but with sensitivity to lower frequency sounds that we can't hear.

 Little is known about their sense of smell and taste. However males secrete a musky odour from a scent gland in the breeding season so it seems likely that they would have a reasonable sense of smell

Underwater, platypus rely on touch and a special sixth sense called electro-reception.

Monotremes are the only mammals to have developed electro-reception. Sharks and rays use electro-reception to detect prey and can pick up the tiny electrical fields produced by the muscular contraction of their prey.

 Underwater footage shows platypus swinging their heads from side to side to detect tiny changes in the electrical field generated by their prey and determine its location.

Platypus are solitary animals that only come together to mate, athough several individuals may be found living in the same section of habitat. Generally they leave their burrows around dusk, forage all night and return around dawn but some animals can also be active in the early morning or evening.

Platypus forage for food for about 12 hours every day and can consume 13-28% of their own body weight in food a day.

They dive for between 20-40 seconds during foraging, generally in shallow water less than about five metres deep, and often rest on the surface chewing for only 10 seconds between dives. They can perform about 75 dives per hour.


During dives, platypus are searching for small invertebrate animals on the bottom, including crustaceans, worms and molluscs, as well as the larvae of many freshwater insects. Once caught, these small prey are carried to the surface in cheek-pouches and then eaten

Platypus have no teeth, but instead have small, horny pads which they use to hold and grind their prey.

 In some areas platypus spend a surprising amount of time out of water, crossing land between water bodies - even foraging for worms and other invertebrates in waterlogged paddocks. Grooming of the fur is important to keep the animal’s pelt in good condition and is carried out in the water or on land. Breeding Mating occurs during spring but is generally earlier in the north of Australia than in the south.

 Mating takes place in the water and, after about 21 days, between one and three eggs are laid in a nesting burrow constructed by the female. The eggs are incubated between the belly and the tail of the female and hatch after about 10 days.

 Like the echidna, the platypus lacks nipples. Milk from the mammary glands oozes through the skin along both sides of the mother's belly where it is then sucked up by the young platypuses. By six weeks, the young are furred, have their eyes open and may leave the burrow for short intervals and enter the water. When about four months, old the young are weaned.

 Venom glands and spurs Male platypuses have spurs on the inside of their hind legs which are attached to crural glands that produce a powerful venom.

Male platypuses can inflict extremely painful wounds in humans, while the venom is capable of killing other animals such as dogs that attack them. Platypuses are one of only five known venomous mammals but the precise role of the spur and venom is not fully understood.

The spurs can inflict wounds on natural predators or other males, and may possibly play some part in the breeding behaviour of the species. The crural gland increases in size during the breeding season and the volume of poison produced increases.


Platypus are capable of many vocalisations including a soft growling sound when disturbed. audio buttonHave a listen this rarely heard growl! Conservation status The platypus is totally protected throughout Australia. Although still common in many parts of its range, it is vulnerable to the continuing degradation of suitable water bodies and burrowing habitat.

AUSSIE SLANG..STRINE

Aussie Slang.

Be warned, unless you are absolutely sure of a phrase, do not use it, slang used in America or England may not mean the same as over here, in fact quite the opposite is often the case in the Australian language with much resultant embarrassment, so be careful.

Another thing to remember is that the Australian language, (Aussiespeak or ‘Strine’ as it is often called) contains a number of mild expletives such as ‘bloody’ as in ‘bloody hell’ or ‘bastard’, often used as a slang term of endearment, and the visitor shouldn’t get offended when they’re used.

With all of its unique and mostly delightful idioms, the Australian language remains basically English.

Here’s an example of the confusion that can be created that I’ve borrowed from somewhere else:

Let's say you’re an American male on a visit to Australia and you meet this dinki-di Aussie sheila.

You click, and she wonders if you can meet her later, say at 5pm, near the lifts by the chemist’s on the first floor of the Oz Building.

"No worries, mate," you say, having already picked up that Aussie expression.

And, yes, you know that lifts are elevators and the chemist’s is the pharmacy or drugstore.

A really good start to what could develop into something great.

And so at 5 o’clock...

Before it’s 5pm you rush into the Oz Building, which you discover to be a shopping centre. You had a map and it was easy to find.

The elevators are there all right but there’s no drugstore. Well, even a true blue Aussie sheila can get her bearings wrong.

So you wait by the elevators, and the minutes tick by.

By 6pm you just know you’ve been stood up...

But what about her?

Well, she was there before 5pm. She was waiting near the lifts by the chemist’s on the first floor but when you didn’t arrive by 6pm, she just knew she’d been stood up.

Unfortunately, the American knows the ground floor of a building as the first floor while any Australian knows that the first floor of a building is the first floor up from the ground floor, or what the American would know as the second floor.

The moral of this little story is: if you don’t know a little bit of the local Australian language you’ll miss out on some good things......

A recent development is using level instead of floor, hence Level 1, Level 2, and so on, to avoid confusion. (Of course, Level 1 may not be the ground floor either, particularly in buildings with underground levels.)

It’s as well to remember that there are a number of Australian words and phrases, for which Americans, or people influenced by the American language, use different terms.

Below you’ll find a list of the more common ‘Australian-isms’ that you’re likely to encounter on your trip to Oz.....................enjoy.

AUSSIE LANGUAGE AND FLIES

G'day,Trev back again

Ya learn'n anything here on Dinky Di Aussie??

You maybe asking what has language and flies

 got to do with each other???


Read on...

The one word G'day is probably the most recognized Aussie word around the World

Now a lot of people thing that us Aussies are lazy and that's why we shorten our words like this.

G;day.....

The stiff upper lip of our English fore bears (nothing to do with drop bears...see below)

Upon meeting some one would say..."Good Day To You" and lift their hat or something.

The problem was ....with so many flies around....if you had your mouth open

with so many words

you were likely to get a few inside!!!!

Many a person,I have seen,nearly choke on them,cause they opened their Gob to often to speak.

So "Good Day To You",became

 G'day


Aussies are renown for their way to over come problems.

"ow ya goin" is another example of how to greet someone without opening your

gob(mouth) for to long

"ow ya goin'.....How Are You Going

Try it....

"How are you going"

.....how often is your mouth open compared to

 "ow ya goin"

I put it to You...Your mouth does'nt even open.

Now more about Flies

You are NOT a MATE if you approach any one and while saying

 g'day or ow ya goin

 You slap them on the back.


"Why is it so" as a renown Aussie physictist...Julius Sumner-Millar,would ask His students

because

 You will disturb all the flies on his/her back.

They then have to put up with them buzzing around

 their head,
in their
 eyes,
ears,
nose,
mouth,
 any where they shoud'nt be..
..

Now I am telling You,them flies can be so thick on Your back you cant see the shirt you're wearing.

Just a Big Black Mass of Fly's.

You maybe saying how filthy...I agree....

but better on your back where you know where they are

 than in your mouth or where ever.


I live in Western Australia.

Back in the seventies the Govt or Tourist Industry come up with a slogan

"Western Australia the State of Excitemen
t"

You would see it used every where,trying to encourage tourism in WA.

Now You're asking

 whats Flies and Tourism to Western Australia got to do with each other

Well.....

Some wag come up with a Tee shirt with this slogan...

"Western Australia the State of Excitement....
10 Million Flies Could'nt Be Wrong"


See Ya Later Trend Setters.

Looking After You and
Keeping You Informed

Here is something for a laugh

posted by Aussie Girl as a Comment
check her blog
aussie girls blog you will love it

A Texan farmer goes to Australia for a vacation
There he meets an Aussie farmer and gets talking.

The Aussie shows off his big wheat field and the Texan says,
"Oh! We have wheat fields that are at least twice as large".

Then they walk around the ranch a little, and the Aussie shows off his herd of cattle.

The Texan immediately says,
 " We have longhorns that are at least twice as large as your cows".

The conversation has, meanwhile, almost died when
the
 Texan sees a herd of kangaroos hopping through the field. He asked,
 "And what are those"?

The Aussie replies with an incredulous look,

 "Don't you have any grasshoppers in Texas"?

Drop Bears and Hoop Snakes

Gday mates Trevs back again

Now you have read the head line DROP BEARS and HOOP SNAKES

I have to be serious here

 Australia can be a dangerous place to be

We all know about Tiger snakes,Red back spiders,funnel web spiders  and other deadlies here in oz

But we need to be sure to inform our visitors of the dangers of Drop Bears an HOOP SNAKES

Below are excerpts from the Drop Bear awareness group on Face Book

I will leave the link at the Bottom

The last posting is My own encounter with the Deadly Drop Bear

Face books DB awareness group Main Statement

WE OWE IT TO PEOPLE OF THE WORLD TO MAKE THEM AWARE OF THE DEADLY DROP BEARS.

The primary prey of Drop Bears are unsuspecting tourists, often Welsh or German but usually US American or Japanese. Drop Bears will wait, in the canopy of the Australian Bush until a person walks beneath them and BAM they will drop on your head. It is commonly understood that the Bears favour those with cameras, due to the entrancing reflection of the sun's rays from the glass lenses on a typical Aussie scorcher of a day. There is no truth in the rarely misquoted assertion that they wish to be "at one with the lens". It is a well known fact that the Australian Government would have banned tourism long ago had it not been for the fact that with no tourists, the drop bears would have been forced to feed on Australians

Drop Bears have had some devastating effects on the environment. Central Australia now consists of vast tracts of treeless desert due to the voracious appetites of the local Drop Bear population coupled with the dearth of American tourists and escaped Boat People in the area. This has increased carbon dioxide levels to highly predictable proportions. Scientists have noted that there is now a large hole in the ozone layer above Australia.

The only know repellent for a Drop Bear is vegemite. You will need to rub it on the back of your neck and on your face to stop them attacking. Many people have tried using Aeroguard but this just makes them more active due to the sweet smell of the mist

Below are various contributions mad on face book by members of the DB awareness group

Alert: During this wild weather, remember to be extra careful. High winds allow Drop Bears to be able to jump further, increasing the risk of attacks further from trees.

I had a narrow escape i was out in the NSW bush on a hunting trip, we were spotlighting for rabbits when we heard a scurry in the trees above and a drop bear came down just missing my uncle it got one of our pig dogs and tore it to pieces, we hit it about a dozen times with a .308 before it took off back into the trees..., safe to say i dont spotlight near trees anymore...

I had a lucky escape, but my horse still carries the scars of attack! I decided to go for a midnight ride under a full moon up the bush on my trusty steed. We were just plodding along, minding our own business, when suddenly my mare became very very agitated, I tried to reassure her, and I looked around, knowing that... snakes are not noctural, so it couldn't be that, when suddenly my mare spooked and bolted, lucky for me, the drop bear missed me but left some nasty claw marks on my mares rump! Was awful and my mare won't go on night rides anymore! :-(

I'll never forget the first time I encountered a drop bear; I was riding the Honda Z50 along a track out the back of Gembrook. The light was just starting to fade, as I left a mates place for home. I was only 15 mins away so I never saw it coming.. I was about half way there, heading down a windy section of the track ...when I the sound - at first I thought it was 50's engine throwing a rod until I realised it was coming from above. I can still remember that terrifying sound to this day.. I looked up to see a huge furry bastard as it hurled itself down toward me.I ducked and tried to swerve the 50 but the gears locked on me and I was knocked clean off. The creature grabbed onto my chest and bared it's teeth, ready to attack. I punched the fucker right in the nose which thew it back onto the ground ...but it got straight back up and lunged at me again until I got another punch in that stunned it for a few seconds. Whereupon I hauled the bike up - which, lucky, was still running - and got out of there as quickly as possible! I sometimes still hear that awful screech coming through the trees and wonder if he's still out there, waiting, plotting his next attack. I just pray to god it won't be me again

Of course no one has mentioned being blinded by the demented things have they? No... see drop bears before attacking will phiss down upon any prospective victim... most are unaware of this but me being one who was once a keen bird watcher now know it for a fact... and I wear the glasses not because its so sunny and bri...ght here in Broome but because I survived a drop bear pre attack!! Blindness being the result... nowadays when out in the bush I dont have to worry about the phiss pre attack if my head gets wet suddenly I simply get into my deadly Bruce Lee death to all drop bears stance an Hiiiiiiiiiiiya! drop bear stew!! ;o) Only way to go

Spotted a drop bear at uni eying the international students suspiciously. Hope they remembered their vegemite XD

For safety's sake, it is best when walking in the Australian bush to make loud whooping noises and wear a BMX stack hat covered with magpie antennas to deter drop bears. If confronted, one should hop on one leg and bark like a dog.

I know this is the Drop Bear awarenes group, but has anyone run into a Kangwallafox lately cause i have not seen one for years and now fear they may be exstinct?

This is My Personal Encounter which happened back in the seventies

Trevor McNamee Well i never my first encounter with drop bears was back in the early seventies.
a group of lads 6 in a panel van and 4 in a mazda drove upto queensland from nsw NB we all from WA.anyhow after a weekend of partying we had to get back to sydney for work.Pissing with rain when all of a sudden a big bang windsceen broken ...and i who was lying across the back of van got an intense thump on the leg.Then all hell broke loose.
driver sceaming cant see the road,every one else yelling what the f..ks going on and im yelling get off it of me ,get it of of me.some one yelled what?? the fn drop bear you f wit i screamed .furtunitly when it come through the w/screen it got partially knocked out and one of my mates was able to put a sleeper hold on and threw it back through the windscreen.We eventually made it back to sydey with a plastic wind screen.
I have never told any one else this story till now cause i didnt think anyone
