The platypus is truly an evolutionary marvel. It has a duck bill, beaver tail, webbed otter feet, venomous spurs, and it’s a mammal that lays eggs. Wow, it got the best of everything, like when Homer Simpson designed that car.
Anyway, it was only natural to combine the best animal on the planet with the greatest mathematical constant of all time, Pi. 3.14 platypuses are known as “platypi” (otherwise, the plural is (“platypodes”). It’s extremely good luck if you cross paths with between 3 and 4 of them at one time. So make a wish. Today’s your lucky day.
