Platypuses do not always have a big tail. The size of a platypus's tail is a indication of how healthy it is, and how much food has been available. A platypus stores most of its body fat in its tail to help it survive when food is limited, and to prepare for when the female must incubate her eggs and care for the young when they hatch.
The tail is also useful for other purposes, and needs to be a good size in order to perform these functions. During the breeding season, the female digs herself a chamber within her deep burrow, and this chamber is lined with leaves and other nesting material. The female with carry this nesting material rolled underneath her tail as she climbs up and down steep riverbanks. In addition, the tail of a platypus helps the animal to swim and acts as a rudder when it dives.
River otters sleep in their holt's (dens), which can be found under tree roots along river banks or in dense undergrowth adjacent to rivers. Natural holt's are becoming pretty rare nowadays, due to the removal of old riverbank trees; however conservation groups are providing artificial holt's in strategic places to allow their natural habitat to recover. Otters may have several holt's a long the river bank, which provide shelter when out feeding and patrolling their territories.
Platypuses which are kept in carefully maintained sanctuaries, in environments which emulate their natural habitat, and able to survive in areas smaller than a standard room. In the wild, of course, their range is much wider.
Yes, river otters are considered omnivores. They eat mainly aquatic plantation, but they also frequently eat shellfish they come across.
Gestation lasts about three months and females have one litter of kits a year between April and June.

*I got this information from the Singapore Zoological Gardens when I visited that place. To confirm my answer, I checked the Singapore Zoological website and also asked my teacher:)
The male sea otter can have as many as fifteen females in his region at a time. When otters mate, it can be a very violent, sometimes causing the female scarring. Now imagine David Attenbergh saying that.
There are just three species of monotreme: the platypus, the short-beaked echidna and the long-beaked echidna. Of the three species, the long-beaked echidna is the largest.
A porcupine is endothermic, able to maintain its own body temperature. It is a mammal, and mammals and birds are endothermic. The term 'endothermic' is the biological term for an animal that is warm-blooded.
Behavioural adaptations of a ringtail possum include:
== == Well, the normal range of foals can be from $450-$900. Yes, there will be prices lower and prices higher. The reason why I didnt say $10,000 is because I'm about to get there. The buy-back foals normally go for a lot more than foals who arent buy-backs. The buy-backs go up to $10,000!
Earthworms are hermaphrodites, meaning every earthworm has female and male body parts, as in testes and ovaries. However, they do need a mate to reproduce. They line up with their head ends facing away from each other and exchange sperm through the seminal receptacles.
No. Sea otters are found only in the northwestern Pacific. The river otter is found in North Carolina.
Yes because it is aquatic
They hold hands so they don't drift away from each other.
