I should have thought that the platypus would have internal oddities like its digestive tract. Hmm. What are some of the best aboriginal peoples' names for this little platypussy?

Yes, the digestive tract differences, losing their teeth like chickens. Are they cute, or what? Except for the venomous spurs, of course. What are some of the aboriginal peoples' names for these platypus? Or are they Platypi?
