The Platypus is a Summoning pet available at level 10 Summoning. Baby platypodes are caught via Hunter at level 48 using a box trap to the south of Oo'glog after completion of As a First Resort. Once caught, a baby platypus eats raw fish or ground fishing bait. An adult eats fishing bait. They seem to have a rather large intellect.
Like most pets, this pet has a growth rate of 1% for every 15% hunger.
Releasing the pet platypus in the same location as done during the quest will result in another casket or oyster.
- When your adult platypus says "chim chim chiree," it is likely a reference to the song "Chim Chim Cher-ee" from the movie Mary Poppins.
- The platypus is one of the few followers able to block other NPCs. This can be used as an aid in trapping penguins or in creating safespots, for example.
