Here's the text of the Audio:
They are one of the most unusual creatures in the animal kingdom. Platypuses are small mammals that lay eggs. They have a furry body like a beaver, a bill and webbed feet like a duck. They live in freshwater areas in the eastern and southeastern coast of Australia and on the island of Tasmania. They swim in water and waddle on land. Platypuses are carnivorous, which means they eat meat but not plants. As they swim, they scoop up insects and larvae, shellfish (shrimps or crabs) and worms.
