    Facts about the Platypus:

    • They are nocturnal.
    • They feed on sea life like crayfish and worms.
    • They are hunted by Owls, snakes, eagles and crocodiles.
    • They live in rivers, lakes and lagoons in forests around the eastern part of Australia.
    • They are venomous.
    • They are one of the few species of mammals that lay eggs.
    • They are semiaquatic.
    • They produce milk like sweat.
    Hopefully these encourage people to vote for this mob.

    Walking source of omlettes. Lets say we cook the egg, milk it, and badaboom. Omlette Time!!! Too bad we can't make toast as well.... Mmm maybe with some butter made from milk (or cheese ???) Minecraft needs some more food and this guy might be a step that way

    I would love this. They have so many uses and its unfortunate the post doesn’t exactly talk about them.

    1. Platypuses would be a source of eggs. They lay eggs of course.

    2. An ambient river mob. They would be the first mob to exclusively spawn in rivers.

    3. They have venomous spurs on their legs. This means that if attacked, they could poison the player (or something similar). They could be classified as a “defensive” mob like Pufferfish, or even neutral.

    4. Gives much more animal diversity to the game. Minecraft has very few animals outside of farm animals, and adding an Australian animal as well as a Monotreme (killing two birds with one stone) would just be awesome.

    I have 2 options for their usage.

    1) You can pet it for binding to the boat for more speed.

    2) You can pet it for catching fish for you

    Yes! We need platypuses in minecraft! Maybe spawning in savana and jungle river biomes? Adding a new semi-aquatic mob would really improve the game, and rather than being a passive mob, maybe a neutral mob; if you attack it it stings/poisons you. They could be a very cute addition to the game and create burrow blocks, dirt blocks with holes through them that join up. These could be mined using silk touch (normal tools would just give dirt) to give burrow blocks which could be placed to create homes for platypuses. You could also breed them with fish or worms!
    Would love to see this ingame!

    Also as platypuses are under threat in the wild it would be good to raise awareness ingame

    Spawns: Non-frozen rivers

    Behavior: Swim through the water, taking breaths every once and awhile. If you attack or bump a non-tamed one, they poison you. Drowned do not want to be poisoned, and will flee from them. Will swallow gravel, sand, coarse dirt, and clay, but only five blocks for two minutes. If you kill one, it will drop these blocks. They will swallow more blocks if you equip a chest on a tamed one, and you will be able to take out the blocks from the chest. They can store 4 stacks. If you manually give ("feed") them sediment, you may tame them. Tamed platypuses will follow you, sit, or be assigned to a job, though they will automatically follow you. Sitting is the second option. To assign one to a specific block type, you put the block in their inventory by itself. If you put in multiple, they will swallow all of the types specified. If you do not put any in, they will eat one block, and assign themselves to that block. To reassign, you may remove as many blocks as needed and add a stone block or stone variant (blackstone, end stone, netherrack, etc all work). This will clog their chest intake, and they will stop collecting. If you remove every other block and add in a new piece of sediment, they will reset to it. If you remove the stone block, they will then continue with the new job. If you remove all blocks and remove the stone immediately, they will go back to collecting all blocks. They are faster, and faster at mining, in water. They can be affected by haste.

    Platypuses (no, its not platypi) are my favorite animal. Weird an adorable, and very interesting creatures. I think they would be a great addition to the game!
