If you want someone to smuggle it down their pants they'll probably ask more than 800BTC.. the venom from a male platypus spur is excruciatingly painful.. apparently. Smiley
There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin Core, which will follow the rules of the network no matter what miners do. Even if every miner decided to create 1000 bitcoins per block, full nodes would stick to the rules and reject those blocks.

What do you do with a platypus? Do you smoke them or snort them or something? Grin

I think you eat them.

I already made this suggestion to my friend, no dice!

He said it might make a good prop to build the habitat around till the real deal could be acquired.

For 1200 BTC I could make one. Just sew a ducks bill and rattlesnake fangs to a beaver. Grin

I think 10,000 or so BTC should do.  Not sure it would survive the boat trip though.

No, I think 10k is probably about right. It's highly illegal (for good reason) and it would be extremely difficult to do. Perhaps you could convince your friend that a duck and a groundhog would suffice? Those are readily available.

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.

So, a little more research and you can just post for someone in Australia to obtain and ship the egg for a bounty.

Have you given any thought to how you'll get it inoculated against the various germs and viri in the air where you live that it's surely not going to have an immunity to?  You probably won't be able to take it to the vet.  That means that if it turns out to be male, you won't be able to get it de-venomed either.  You'll have a very cute, poisonous mammalian duck freak waddling around your house.  Has your friend thought this through?

I thought about the egg idea, but I'd imagine that it needs constant regulated temperatures and conditions in order to not die... air-mail is often sent in depressurized cargo bays, which would certainly kill a platypus in an egg.

Also, I already feel bad for whatever creature your friend gets his/her hands on.  Undecided
