Making Platypuses 

Or is it "platypii?" Either way, scientists have now found that these fantastic characters are even more fantastic than previously held: they have ten (10) sex chromosomes, by far the most of any known species. I'm mildly shocked that there hasn't been more research on the platypus, given how bizarre it is, since such aberrations can really prove enlightening as to how the rest of the system came about.
