  1. Ellen W. says:

    I voted for the snuffly beekers, but my REAL answer is that they look so fuzzy-soft. Like velvet.

  2. I can’t choose, it’s the combination that does it for me. 🙂

  3. Cutekotori says:

    They look like the softest velvet 🙂

  4. Ditto on the combination.

  5. wascawywabbit says:

    other.. they are covered in velvet!

  6. They look so sooofffft . . . Ellen W., it would be tempting to rub them against your face to see if they feel as velvety as they look.

  7. dgerish says:

    I voted for beeks, but I still love my wombats.

  8. They look so squidgey! Five fingers five toes, squinty foldy eyes. gaaahhhhh *dies*

  9. Saffron says:

    The folds everyone! THE FOLDS. 😀

  10. murkle46 says:

    The common name “platypus” is the latinisation of the Greek word πλατύπους (platupous), “flat-footed”,[7] from πλατύς (platus), “broad, wide, flat”[8] and πούς (pous), “foot”.

  11. Ellen W. says:

    MA- that is *exactly* how I want to pet them.

    I’m so glad I’m not the only one!

  12. Geek Insight: The Internal Google code name for “Google Drive” when it was in development, was “Platypus.”

  13. I love those little duck beaks and chose that but also the velvety fur does me in too.

  14. dgerish says:

    Brinke, I wish Google Drie had kept Platypus–would have made me use it more!

  15. Kristin says:

    I’m voting for all of the above, plus they are apparently the size of a person’s hand! Holy Moly! Tiny, velvety, squishy, foldy, beeky adorableness!

  16. meltinsmush says:

    The feetz! The feetz!

  17. If a pug and a duck had a baby, it would be a platypus.

  18. i too voted for their adorable little beaks but the velvet is what really gets me.

  19. Velvety fur!!!!!!
