Ornithorhynchus anatinus, or duck-billed platypus, is a primitive egg-laying mammal

Lineage: Eukaryota[13882]; Metazoa[6614]; Chordata[3172]; Craniata[3144]; Vertebrata[3144]; Euteleostomi[3111]; Mammalia[848]; Monotremata[2]; Ornithorhynchidae[1]; Ornithorhynchus[1]; Ornithorhynchus anatinus[1]
Ornithorhynchus anatinus, or duck-billed platypus, is an important model organism for developmental, evolutionary, and genomic studies. The platypus and two species of echidna comprise the monotremes (prototherian mammals). Monotremes diverged from therian mammals (marsupials and placentals) approximately 210 million years ago and, not surprisingly, More...
