And if you want to know more about Platypus.... keep an eye on this!!
The platypus is a semi-aquatic mammal that has a very unusual appearance, it is duck-billed, has a beaver-like tail, lays eggs, has otter-like fur and webbed feet.
The platypus is only found in eastern Australia in small rivers and streams within the states of Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania.
Females platypus lay 2 - 4 eggs, incubating them for two weeks.
The back foot ankle spur of a male platypus contains a venom that is powerful enough to kill small animals such as dogs. The venom is not lethal to humans, but it can cause severe pain, that sometimes lasts for weeks.
The platypus is an excellent swimmer, diving under water on average for around 30 seconds to forage for food before coming up for air.
Platypus close their eyes and ears when under water, so in order to feed on worms, insects, and freshwater shrimp, they use their sense of electroreception and dig up muddy river beds with their bill to detect the electric fields of prey.
The platypus is usually nocturnal, coming out at night or twilight to feed, sometimes they are also active on overcast days.
The platypus sleeps on average up to 14 hours per day.
As you know respiratory system takes part in one of the three vital functions of humans beings: NUTRITION
The job of your respiratory system is very simple: To bring oxygen into your body, and remove the carbon dioxide from your body. Your body needs oxygen to survive. How do you breathe? Take a deep breath. Feel the air rushing in? How does it feel? Cool? Crisp? Now blow out. Do you feel the warm air blowing over your lips? As you breathe in, a special organ called a diaphragm pulls your lungs down, making them bigger. This causes air to rush into your lungs. Think about this for a moment.
