This isn't funny my brother was addicted to platypi and died from an overdose. I saw his dealer at the funeral and he was already selling again. It makes me sick that you guys do these kinds of things without thinking of how addiction can ruin a family.

Jeez Mushroomized, how pure are they selling them where you are?  If it's anything like over here, they've been cut with leopard or even dolphin by the time they get to the street.  You're lucky if you get one that doesn't have a dorsal fin.

I feel for your loss, but from here it sounds more like your brother likely didn't overdose per se, quite so much as miss when he tried to get the spurs to dig into a vein.  It's difficult to get a decent aim when the little guys are thrashing around that hard in your arms trying to get away.  Sometimes people will have a rogue spur jab them right in the jugular, and then it's game over for real.

I wish you'd consider giving lectures at schools.  You'd be an obvious person to give them, and it's a message a lot of kids need to hear.  When I notice the kids today doing the "duckface" trying to score a little 'pus, I wish they knew better what they were getting into, and that their parents knew the warning signs.

Amen. The palatypi I can score has been stepped on so many times it 's hard to know what your getting. On the street dealers will sew a duck bill onto a beaver and sell it to kids!  What is the world coming to when you cant trust a street dealer.

ProTip: Platypi hatch from eggs, which are much easier to ship.  The eggs take 10 days to hatch.

Sure you could label it some other species and pay for whatever Super Awesome Ultra Deluxe Shipping they have.



My friend loves this idea. 

Does the egg need oxygen?  or to be a certain temperature?  or to have near sea level pressure on it?

Welp, I didn't mean to convey the idea that I'm a Platypus Egg Expert or anything.   Smiley

As I understand it, eggs don't need oxygen because there's a little air bubble in them at one end.  If you think about chicken eggs, you'll get what I mean.

They absolutely need to be kept warm, which is probably the biggest concern.  Particularly if you're having them shipped Air, which is the fastest.  They'll be at high altitudes and low pressure.

And keeping them free from jostling is going to be important.  Label them Fragile, obviously.  Someone I was reading online had been shipping chicken eggs using egg carton holders, on the top and the bottom, and with a lot of bubble wrap and styrofoam and tape around that assembly.  Evidently they'd been shipped just fine.  Of course, he was talking about a percentage of the eggs that made it and lived; keep that in mind in terms of your friend's case with attempting just a single egg.  No idea how he managed with the warmth factor, but I doubt he was sending chicken eggs trans-continental over the oceans.  It was probably within the same country, reducing both the time in transit and the duration at high altitudes.

I'd think those prolonged chemical warming packs that campers use might be good, but somehow I doubt they'd last for two or three days.

Your friend has a lot of research to do on this before proceeding.  I don't have all the answers.  I would also think that if your friend isn't willing to do the online research needed first, they probably lack the interest and involvement that's needed to take care of the platypus once it arrives anyway.  It would involve quite a lot of forethought, as I'd mentioned before.  Any word on how they'd deal with the fact that males are poisonous, in a country where a trip to the vet - or the emergency room if necessary - simply wouldn't be an option for them?  Or the unfamiliar germs and virii problem?


Be well,

Yeah it seems like the trick is a pressurized/heated container..  I wonder how similar chicken eggs are to Platypi.  My friend thinks that trial runs of Chicken eggs could be beneficial to determing if it would work for Platypi..

I'd like to see you airmail a pressurized container. No wait, it wouldn't even be allowed on the plane. Roll Eyes

Only small ones, that don't have inbuilt heating aparatus. Tongue

I've checked in aerosol cans on multiple occasions since 2001.

In 2001, I bought a Swiss army knife in the airport (after passing through the security check), and took it in my hand luggage one four subsequent flights.

I've read this entire thread with the hope of seeing an image of a platypus, but no joy, hence this post.

Im in Australia and I could get a platypus. But I would never send it out of the country because it would never survive.

I'm sure a habitat could be constructed outside of Aussieland where a Platypus would thrive!!

I'd think a habitat where an otter would thrive, would be good for platypi as well.
