A Shy Australian - An Australian Platypus swimming under water and on land by Chris McClelland
  A Shy Australian  (2011)
Subject: An Australian Platypus swimming under water and on land
Dimensions (centimeters): 48 x 44
Medium: Coloured Pencils
Description: Many artists paint platypuses under water with their eyes open when in fact they are shut. This creature has evolved a highly sensory duck-like bill, enabling it to locate its prey in turbid water without the need of sight.
I drew its mate sunning itself in full view but equally wary of aerial predators, with its eyes open.
