The platypus is not a bird
like the platypus is a bird that feeds like a mammal,

Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Class: Mammalia
Order: Monotremata
Family: Ornithorhynchidae
Genus: Ornithorhynchus
Species: anatinus
Edited by DrJones*, : No reason given.

Just a monkey in a long line of kings.
If "elitist" just means "not the dumbest motherfucker in the room", I'll be an elitist!

Re: The platypus is not a bird
But it's not certain whether the platypus is a bird or a mammal or a reptile, because it has features of all
No its a mammal.
1. War blooded
2. Fur
3. Tribosphenic molars
4. Ear bones incorporated into the skull
5. Lactation
It's a weird mammal no doubt, but it is a mammal.

Just a monkey in a long line of kings.
