An adult male platypus named Millsom being handled by his keeper at an animal sanctuary in Melbourne May 8, 2008. Australia's unique duck-billed platypus,an egg-laying, furry animal with web feet that spends most of its time underwater, is in fact part bird, part reptile and part mammal according to its gene map. A team of international scientists released the playtpus genome on Thursday, saying its complex gene sequence will aid the study of human evolution, particularly the development of the immune, nervous and reproductive systems.

The two territorial nocturnal males will be separated by plexiglass in a bid to stop conflicts in the display which recreates a night time environment for the rare monotremes unique to Australia. A national naming competition will give all Australians a chance to name the special creatures.
