The body and the broad, flat tail of the Platypus are covered with dense brown fur that traps a layer of insulating air to keep the animal warm. The Platypus uses its tail for storage of fat reserves. It has webbed feet and a large, rubbery snout; the webbing is more significant on the front feet and is folded back when walking on land. The male Platypus has venomous ankle spurs which produce a cocktail of venom.

The finished piece is then framed and when mounted on a wall or perhaps a bench top with lighting directed on it, the image comes to life! A truly beautiful spectacular masterpiece.
