This is my platypus design I created one day. You may use this design, but please give credit to me, and have a link to my page. The yellow is Lance, the blue is Sir Frederick VII and the orange is Charlie.
About this creation

These are the pieces you will need to build your platypus.
-3 1x2 brown flats
-1 1x3 brown flat
-1 1x1 smooth brown (or colored, and when, same color as the flippers) flat
-2 flippers of the same color
-1 black stud
-1 stud, the same color as the flippers

This is the body.
Stack 2 1x2 brown flats on top of each other, and place them on top of your 1x3 brown flat.

This is the head.
Place one flipper, and add your black stud on top. Then, have your remaining 1x2 flat brown on top of that.

These are the details.
Place the remaining flipper on the end of the body that is 3 flats high. Place your color of your choice stud on the opposing end. On the empty space on the 1x3 brown flat, place the smooth 1x1 flat.

Here is the platypus altogether.
Place the head so the flipper touches the smooth brown 1x1 flat, and the 1x2 on the head is slanted slightly upward.

That's your platypus!!!!!! If you do not have a brown 1x1 smooth flat, it still looks great if you use the same color as the flippers. You can see an example of that on Lance and Sir Frederick VII

*Next time* The turquoise platypus!!

Quoting Beth C. Good instructions! Have you ever made a bigger platypus?
Yes, in fact, see Platypi, with Jeoffrey.

I would say very helpful, but since you built them at my house and I know how to build them, instead I will say that they're very... ummm.... colorful! Yes, that's the word I was looking for! ~Henry
