Duck-billed Platypus

cute but deadly animal

Duck-billed Platypus

Okay so maybe the Duck-Billed Platypus has the face only a mother could love but they are so bizarre looking that they are cute.

Would you believe me if I told you that this mixed up animal was actually quite deadly (I hope you would believe me since we are on #2 of the Cute but Deadly list).

That’s right, the male platypus has two spurs on their hind legs that contain a powerful poison. If you are on the wrong end of this spur, you may just find yourself in agonizing pain for the next several months.
