A baby platypus is not called a puggle, which seems to be a common misconception. There is no official name for a baby platypus, but a common suggested name is "platypup".

baby echidnas are puggles but the term can be used to refer to any monotreme

Male echidnas have a four-headed penis, but only two of the heads are used during mating. The other two heads "shut down" and do not grow in size. The heads used are swapped each time the mammal copulates.[6]

I like it how the English originally thought Australians had stitched together parts of different animals to fake them out when they sent platypus specimens back to the mother country

My daughter's pet Platypus is driving me nuts

Okay, here's the situation...

Now that the weather has turned cooler, Pia the Platypus has moved indoors from the pond out back of Stately Repairman Manor to the hot tub next to the swimming pool. Before my morning swim, I must scoop up the poop found floating using my golf ball retriever, and believe you me, there's a lot of poop!

On top of all that, Pia eats almost exclusively a diet of giant tiger prawns and turns up her leathery bill-like snout to less expensive options like worms or imitation crab meat. I can tell you from personal experience what smell a Platypus gives off with such a diet, and it isn't Roses.

All well and good, you might say. Except for one important fact: Platypi have to be about the most useless creatures on God's Green Earth. I can't possibly understand what purpose they serve. While we all know of the unusual fauna in Australia (some that feature up to five orifices), I can't help but think this mutant species is nothing more than proof that Darwin's theory is out of whack. There's absolutely no endearing qualities this animal has. They show nothing in their behavior that can be considered the least bit pet-like. Plus, Pia really freaks out the dogs. They won't go anywhere near the swimming pool.

How do I break it to my daughter that I want Pia gone? And would the SPCA accept a Platypus?
