Easter Monotreme

It's Easter Sunday for many people around the world - this also means that the Easter "Bunny" is showing up, hiding eggs for people to find. But rabbits and eggs don't generally co-occur. But there is a group of mammals that do lay eggs. Monotremes - like the platypus and echidna lay eggs.

The platypus also has a flattened snout that looks like a duck. Instead of the Easter Bunny, I think we need to create the Easter Platypus. Besides - platypus have a nasty claw-like spur on their back legs and the males' spurs are venomous.
