#7: Glow in the Dark
Platypuses, those unique and fascinating creatures native to Australia, hold some truly extraordinary secrets. One of the most intriguing features is their surprising reaction to ultraviolet light. When exposed to UV light, the normally inconspicuous brown fur of a platypus suddenly reveals a blueish-green glow, a phenomenon that has left scientists puzzled.
And that’s not all! Platypuses also have a distinctive approach to lactation. Unlike most mammals, they lack nipples. Instead, they secrete milk from mammary glands through openings in their skin. These peculiar traits are just some of the many enigmatic features that make the platypus a truly remarkable and puzzling species in the animal kingdom.
