From 1798, when the first specimen arrived in England, the platypus has been the subject of controversy. It was first thought a clever hoax had been perpetrated by a skilled taxidermist stitching together the bill of a duck and other parts of unknown mammals! This book confines itself to the known facts rather than the myths and legends which surround this beautiful, secretive and shy creature.
