It’s Season 2 of CritterCast! After an extended, 2020-induced hiatus, your favorite animal lovers Cassie and Koreena are back at it. This episode we get back to our roots and back into the swing of it, investigating the weird and wonderful world of Platypuses (or Platypi if you are a fan of quirky words). These strange mammals that aren’t quite mammals are known for their duck bills and egg-laying abilities…but there is much more to learn! Tune in and follow our sources for even more fascinating information.
