Day 38 - Platypus

On the way back to Hobart airport we stopped at Deloraine. While we were having a coffee I looked at my GPS to see if there were any geocaches nearby. Spotting there was one by the river I read through the recent logs and noticed that somebody had seen a platypus down there as well so it seemed worth investigating. As we were crossing the bridge I spotted movement in the water and sure enough there was a platypus. It is not the clearest picture but it was an unexpected bonus as we had hoped to see one on our holiday but never expected it.

My extra is worth looking at as well. It was taken from our room before we left and it shows a baby pademelon climbing back into its mothers pouch (head first)
