Mammals that lay eggs? Do they even exist? The short answer is yes; they exist, and all of them are fascinating creatures. Our world is big and full of curiosities, mammals that lay eggs being one of them.
And what other place could be the home of unusual animals than Australia? All of these animals can be found only in Australia and New Guinea, so you will not encounter them in your backyard, but this doesn’t mean that you can’t learn more about them.
This group of mammals that lay eggs instead of giving birth to live babies is called the monotremes. This is easily one of the most fascinating examples of the diversity of life on our beautiful planet.
Despite their odd features, monotremes play a crucial role in their ecosystem. Unfortunately, a lot of them are under threat because of pollution and other harmful human activities.
