duck billed platipus....darn, what is that genus....

-- Rose (, November 04, 2001.

are platipi truly marsupials? hmmm then that makes them in the family with possums and kangas, but I do believe they lay eggs.

too much thought for Sunday AM

I'm going out in the garden!

-- Rose (, November 04, 2001.

It isn't even daylight yet!

-- Laura (, November 04, 2001.

Its full daylight here Laura, 8:18 EST; and I have one correct answer so far....

-- mitch hearn (, November 04, 2001.

Isn't the other one called a spiney or spiked anteater?

-- Cheryl in KS (, November 04, 2001.

I thought that one was too easy, yes it is spiney anteater and platapus so lets go to the second half of the question: All mammals have one thing in common, besides being warm blooded and this one trait is: All mammals have a _________, and you can see each and everyone? This applies to porpus, ponys, poddles, platapi, possum, people, pigs,ect.

I second the "teats" answer!

-- Annie Miller in SE OH (, November 04, 2001.

I thought it was nurse their young and have hair. Yes, whales have hair.

-- Rose (, November 04, 2001.

All mammals have mammary glands, teats. I was shocked the first time I was called Ma'am!

-- Laura (, November 04, 2001.

I had better clairify this and say: What single one thing do all mammals have in common that you can see?

-- mitch hearn (, November 04, 2001.

How about hair?

-- Lacey (, November 04, 2001.

Belly buttons (navels)!!!!

-- Judi (, November 04, 2001.

-- Micheale from SE Kansas (, November 04, 2001.

Gussers, keep wagging yours; your looking for gift horse; hair? I see millions, belly buttons- for egg born mammals? Marsuperals- carrying young in a pouch? I am going to bed, its late here. Tomorrow I am going to redo the fifth grade.~~

-- mitch hearn (, November 04, 2001.

Hair may not be the answer you are looking for; but I remembered that out of biology class (even whales)...along with backbones, warm blooded, internal reproductive system, two distinct sexes, have 7 bones in our neck.....that's all this old brain can pick out......oh yeah one piece jaw....but most of that you can not see....and a 4 chambered heart. Ready to learn something new-again :) ! (wished I believed them, when they told us in school, we would use this stuff someday...I might have paid closer attention)

Well woke up an hour earlier than usual, and dreaming of strange animals in my barn..hmmmm this thing must be bugging me. Thought of tongues; but some cold blooded things have are not suppose to look a gift horse in the mouth....but if you'd see teeth.....maybe that thingy thats hangs in the back of your throat (don't know if they have those or not) Does it have something to do with our teeth? Although I don't know if that platpus thing has any.

-- Lacey (, November 05, 2001.

Wagging yours? Look a gift horse (in the mouth)? Would it be easier if I just posted the answer with the original question???? Of course its that all mammals have a tongue, so do lizzards and birds and snakes, ect but they were not addressed in the question.

-- mitch hearn (, November 05, 2001.

Yeah, I realized I was spinning off there, and even thought of gators have teeth.....but since teeth are more readily seen.....but totally dismissed the wagging part........was good at turning tests in like that too :). Knew better after I turn the paper in and read all that red ink!

-- Lacey (, November 05, 2001.

They have a small NOT TESTED ON ANIMALS sign stuck right behind there left ear. I'm almost positive.
