Ornithorhynchus anatinus - Platypus

The platypus is the sole living representative of its family (Ornithorhynchidae) and genus (Ornithorhynchus). Together with the echidna, it is one of the two monotremes, the only mammals that lay eggs instead of giving birth to live young. Like the echidna it senses prey through electrolocation. 

The Platypus is a unique and highly adaptive animal, just like our houseboat designs.
