Patron Mascot

A comment gave me the idea. Scroll down to the bottom and see our Patron Mascot. It is time to give the Platypus his due.

Is this Platypus a "High" or "Low" Platypus?

Hurray for Ornithorhynchus anatinus, the world's favorite monotreme. An excellent choice for our patron mascot - rare, shy, and wary.

Well, wouldn't he be a bit tired having swum the Tiber all the way from Australia?

That might be a bit off-putting for him.

Which is why zoologists who dared call them frauds were well advised not to do so to their faces.

I believe the spurs are on the rear feet. I think they don't like being taken by surprise. Wounds their pride, I imagine.

Actually, what it really means is that where they appear vulnerable, they are most ready to defend themselves.
