‘ Jenny Forward was driving home in Tasmania when she spotted what she thought was an injured platypus on the roadside. She attempted to intervene, but when she picked up the semi-aquatic critter, she felt two spikes dig into either side of her right hand. These spikes released venom into the wounds, leaving her in agony, ABC News reported.

"It was as though someone had stabbed [my hand] with a knife," Forward told the news network. "The pain was excruciating … definitely worse than childbirth," she said. ‘

What? They are venomous? How come they are always portrayed as nice and lovable creatures?

I think only the males have those spikes and they use them when fighting over territory and mating.
I saw a PBS show recently about the platypus. grinning smiley

They got good PR people. Plus furry with a cute tail!

However: if you encounter an animal within 1000km of Australia, always assume it's venomous.
