Egg Laying Mammals

egg image


The duck-billed platypus and the spiny anteater are mammals that lay eggs rather than give live birth. The platypus has a bill like a duck, fur like a mammal and webbed feet. It lays eggs that look like reptile eggs. Its young feed from the mother's mammary glands.

The spiny anteater's covering looks like that of the porcupine. It has a long tongue to catch insects and a bill. It lays several eggs which it keeps in a pouch on its side.
