None of the above.

Platypuses do not actually live in any waterholes or creeks. They dig burrows in the banks of freshwater rivers and creeks. They can be found alongside creeks or rivers with a slow rate of running water, as well as in still freshwater ponds, dams, lakes and billabongs - as long as there is a bank high enough above the waterline for the platypus to dig its burrow.

Platypuses will never be found in any marine or saltwater environment such as oceans,

Why Do platypuses live in the swamp?

Platypuses do not live in the swamp. Platypuses do not live in water at all. They burrow in riverbanks and creekbanks, above the waterline, so their burrow remains dry. Platypuses need creeks and rivers for hunting in, but they are also found alongside lakes. They prefer clean, slightly running water, preferably not stagnant like that found in swamps, although they do sometimes live in lakes. In addition, swamps, by their very nature, do not have banks that will allow platypuses to dig shelters. Swamps are low-lying wetland areas, with saturated flats that do not allow a platypus to dig and stay dry when it is not hunting for food.
