This goes againgt; ever] thing we know about mammals--furry crea- tures that give birth to their babies the way we do--with- out shells. Also, mammals feed their young with their own breast milk. A platypus does feed its young milk, but it doesn't have any teats, so where does the milk come from? The answer--tufts of fur. Because the platypus is so different, it is called a monotreme. Another strange fact about the duck-billed platypus is that its bill is soft, unlike a duck's. The platypus uses it like a metal detector, sweep- ing the bottom of the river or stream it lives in for the elec- trical fields that shrimp and worms hidden in the mud give off. It digs in the mud with its bill, and scoops out its food. At the surface, it picks through and chews its food, then stores it in its cheek pouches before ..... it dives " for more. Eat- ing can take up to 12 hours a day for a platypus. The strangest fact of all may be that the platypus is the only venomous furred crea- ture known to man. Both male and female platypuses are born with spurs on the inside of their hind legs that give out poison, like a snake, when at- tacked. As females mature, the spurs disappear, but they remain on males. Although it is known that strikes from these spurs mimic snakebites, there is no record of a human ever being killed by a platypus attack. No one got the answer from April's ques- tion-who was the first person to come up with Daylight Saving Time? It was Benjamin Franklin! He thought it up in 1784, but the U.S. didn't try it until 1918.
