A giant platypus was living at rivers in Australia 5 to 15 million years ago says a new science report. Professor Mike Archer of the University of New South Wales says that the the animals needs to be called Platypus Godzilla. It had powerful teeth and big brutish snout.
The research team identified the Platypus Godzilla from a single tooth discovered at the Riversleigh World Heritage area. Apparently the tooth is very unique, else the association with the platypus mammal group.
Today's platypus do not have teeth and are really cute and not dangerous. They look like a mixture between a duck and a beaver. The Godzilla Platypus was though a dangerous fellow at about 3 feet long.
