The platypus is an unusual mammal in that it is hatched from an egg after about 8-10 days of incubation. It stays with the mother in the nesting chamber for several months before learning to hunt for food in the water. They are nocturnal creatures, which hunt for food at night. Platypuses reach reproductive age at around 2 years old.
