Platypus Coloring Pages

The platypus is the most primitive of mammals, and although it is capable of nursing, it does not have a protruding nipple but instead secretes milk from its mammary glands to the surface as if it were sweating. The platypus has 4,000 electrical sensors in its beak, and when it dives, it closes its eyes, nose, and ears, relying solely on its beak to detect the tiny electrical currents generated by the muscular contractions of its prey. Here are some free printable platypus coloring pages.
