Platypus’s have “electrolocation”. Essentially, they have receptors in their bill that allows them to detect the electrical signals their prey may generate. The ironic thing is, the more quickly prey flees, the more electricity it generates, so it becomes easier for a platypus to pursue it. What’s more, the males have barbs on their hind legs that can inject a lethal poison.
