They have webbed feet to help them to swim. Platypuses live in creeks ponds in N.S.W Vic TAS A.C.T and Q.L .Platypuses need bugs to eat they need their bills to search for food under water because eyes and ears under water .They need borrows to live on the creek. Platypus predators are snakes .Platypus are not like other mammals they lay eggs.
