Because one can never have enough platypus.

From: The Pictorial Museum of animated nature (1844) and A hand-book to the marsupalia and monotremata (1896)

If you’d like to find more there are some in the State Library of NSW collections. We have some quite lovely drawings including this one by J.W.Lewin (1810).
