Meet The Platypus

PlatypusI am a duck-billed platypus—
A very curious creature!
My fur is brown, my nose is flat—
My most important feature!

My tail’s flat, too; my toes are webbed;
I live beside the water.
I lay two eggs below the ground,
And hatch my son and daughter.

I mainly feed on snails and worms,
And underneath the river
I dig a burrow for my home—
It doesn’t make ME shiver!

I line it with soft leaves and plants—
It’s really very pleasant.
If you should call, I hope you’ll bring
Some tit-bit as a present!

∼ Porter G., Hilda Offen, Pradera, Esme Eve, Alan Jesset, Richard Hooke
