Platypus are resident in the freshwater habitat of the Brid River. They dig burrows in the earth banks and forage mainly at night on small invertebrate animals on the bottom, including crustaceans, worms, molluscs, as well as the larvae of many freshwater insects. They can easily detect movement on the river bank, and they have acute hearing.
