The animal of the week is the beaver, because we are trying to save the beavers and trees without harm. (PS: this video was not made by us, maybe next week we will have our own.) :)

Everyone loves baby animals!
Platypus Babies

These babies have just hatched from eggs! The platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus) is an unusual egg-laying mammal native to Australia, with a duck-like bill and a tail like a beaver.

The platypus is also one of 6 venomous mammals in the world. The others all deliver venom through their saliva, but the male platypus has a special horny spur on the inside of it's heel, used to attack.
