Welcome, friends, to the magical and wondrous world of platypus YouTube clips. You probably didn’t know this was a world, or a thing, and you’re probably skeptical about the whole experience. Watch the furry cuddles at 0:10, though, and then get back to us.
If you, too, are now overtaken with a strong desire to cuddle your own happy platypus, head on over to Healesville Sanctuary in rural Australia. Healesville is famous for showing animals in their natural habitat, for a large population of the helmeted honeyeater and, of course, for its very friendly platypus population.
