I think it's high time we paid some attention to one of the strangest creatures on this earth: the platypus. Yesterday it became clear that, yes: Platypus genome is as weird as its looks
The draft genome sequence should also help to end the platypus's identity crisis.

I did! But then again I have a husband who loves platypuses. It's only the male species who have it though.
I love its Dutch name vogelbekdier

Vogelbekdier would make a great board moniker. If that is what you are waiting for lurkers...

The german name is a little less spectacular, it's just Schnabeltier (beak-animal). Sorry for the letdown.
Oh and, Neil Young got his own spider
, and with all the supernerds drawn to TLW I wonder how long until we get a cordylus johnrodericki

Lutra johnrodericki, surely.
Or perhaps Teuthis....
Roy Orbison has a beetle, you know.
