PLATYPUS IN THE TROPICS (Australia, 2012, 40 min.)

World Premiere Called “the world’s most bizarre creature,” the platypus is endemic to eastern Australia, living in the tropical rainforests of North Queensland, as well as in the southeastern temperate regions of Australia. This natural history documentary filmed over seven years entirely in the wet tropics of North Queensland Australia, reveals the little-known lifestyle of the Platypus, offering lengthy behavioral footage of these creatures, never before seen or filmed, both inside their burrows and in the water. Platypus in the Tropics is the first documentary to focus entirely upon the annual lifecycle of the Platypus, providing an intimate, close-up perspective of Platypus life. Directed and produced by Alberto Vale.
