Pete the Platypus & Mini Rattle
After beaching himself next to a backyard creek, silly little Pete couldn't resist the smell of a barbie on the back veranda. It only took a couple of snags and a cuddle with the kids for Pete to fully embrace domestic life. Nowadays you'll find him swimming round the family's rain water tank waiting for dinner time.
Mini Pete is considering changing his name to rattlepus, as he lives for children giving him a gentle shake and besides, he never understood the 'Platypus' etymology (clearly, he is yet to discover the internet). His soft fur and cute 'duck bill' makes this handsome young rattlepus a darling companion.
