  • 1. THE PLATYPUS By: Holden Scarbrough
  • 2. HOW ARE THEY ENDANGERED??? * Platypuses were hunted for their unique fur. * That was back in the 50’s. * Now they have laws that say it is illegal to kill orcapture platypuses.* (Now a days, their on the warning list)
  • 3. WHERE DO THEY LIVE???* Platypuses are found along streams in Australia.* They live in burrows that are along streams that they dig out. * Each platypus lives in its own burrow.
  • 4. PICTURES OF PLATYPUSES!!!!
  • 5. WHAT PLATYPUSES EATPlatypuses are carnivores. They spend 12 hours a day findingfood(probably because of deforestation). They mainly eatshrimp, crayfish, insect larvae, and worms.Finally, something I find interesting is that the platypuses bill isnot it’s mouth. It’s mouth is UNDER the bill :)
  • 6. PLATYPUSES SIZE AND WEIGHT* Believe it or not, but, the platypuses size is about17 to 19 inches.* Also their weight is a couple of pounds.(1to 2pounds if you want the number answer.)
