    Three of the answers would be correct (IMHO), but you can only check one.

    I have absolutely no idea what a monotreme is.

    Guessed platypus.

    This faskinating group of beasties being platypi and echidnas are Australian egg laying mammals. Monotremes mean one hole .....this being the digestive wastes, kidney wastes and reproductive tracts are through one exit point....strange but true...the end part of the beast is also known as the cloaca. the egg when hatched in the marsupial pouch has a tiny weenie baby known as a puggle. Mamma does not have teats so the puggle less than a jellybean in size nuzzles mammas skin in the pouch and hey presto milk is secreted through the skin for the babino to lap or lick/suck.....they are amazing critturs....I was totally taken with seeing an echidna in the bush when holidaying in Tasmania and fell in love with needly cuteness of them:applause:
