U – Unusual
It was hard to find an animal and plant starting with this letter so I have decided to use the word ‘unusual’ for this post.
A couple of animals that look unusual are the platypus and the weedy sea dragon that you can see at Beauty Point attractions, Platypus House and Seahorse World. Better photos of a platypus can be seen at the link above.
An unusual plant is the Potato orchid. My dad has these growing down the driveway at his house. Sorry one of the photos is a bit blurry.
From the first image you can see why it is called a potato orchid.
