Platypus is one of the few venomous mammals
that can deliver venom capable of causing severe pain to humans. Although the venom is not lethal to humans, it is so
excruciating that the victim may be incapacitated. Oedema rapidly develops around the wound and gradually spreads
throughout the affected limb. Information obtained from case histories and anecdotal evidence indicates that the pain
develops into a long-lasting hyperalgesia that persists for days or even months.
