    Ah yes, well ............ I certainly appreciated your very kind gift but, sadly, I have to tell you that somebody sold you a pup. The Platypus you see, doesn't have teeth. Nor does its cousin the Echidna.
    But, the Echidna does have large spikes and an Aboriginal luthier from Boing Boing turned me a set of bridge pins from a large male. I would describe the resultant tone as Marsuperial.

    Ah, good old A'shki, nicely turned toward the prurient for me. Now that you're all fascinated, you will all, surely, be spellbound by this piece of info. ...........


    3. Male echidnas have a bizarre, four-headed penis. You might wonder how you mate with a four-headed penis. During sex, two of the heads shut down while the other two grow bigger to fit into the female's two-branched reproductive tract. Males alternate the heads they use between matings. This one-sided ejaculation may play a role in sperm competition, as many males attempt to fertilize the same female. In another possible adaptation for sperm competition, echidna sperm form bundles that swim faster than individual sperm cells.

    If you're curious about what the echidna's penis looks like (and really, who isn't?), you can find photos here and watch a video here.

    I used to think I wanted to reincarnate as a lion:
    "When lions mate, they do so frequently. Copulation is repeated around 4 to 6 times an hour, and goes on for days."
    Now you've got me thinking "Echidna".
    Nice to have you back.
    Even if you were responsible for shattering my high regard for the virtues of platypus tooth bridge pins.
