What a great report. Over the last few years platypus have been found in Mackenzie Creek not far from here.

That's great! They're so cute! 😁

@BeeHappy not pleasant if they poison you.

@FrayedBear Well no, I guess not.

When I was a kid , we used to find box turtles in the spring early summer . I learned that if you move a box turtle ,it starves , because it's not at home and can't find food. Have not seen one in many years.
You will see a snapper in the road or field in July. They lay eggs . Red stripe green turtles are still around ,but not doing well. Frogs still exist.. But the animals are not doing well.
