What mammal group lay eggs?
No. Placental mammals give live birth. The egg-laying mammals are known as monotremes , and belong to the order monotremata.
Monotremes. There are only three kinds: the platypus and the short-beaked echidna, both native to Australia, and the long-beaked echidna, native to neighboring New Guine…a.
A mammal that lays eggs is known as a monotreme. The only known monotremes are the platypus, the short-beaked echidna and the long-beaked echidna.
The only egg-laying mammals are the platypus and the echidna. Neither of these mammals has feathers.
There are just three known species of egg-laying mammals, or monotremes. They are the platypus and short-beaked echidna (Tachyglossus aculeatus) of Australia, and the long-bea…ked echidna (Zaglossus bruijni) of Papua New Guinea. The echidna is sometimes called the spiny anteater, and there are several sub-species of the long-beaked echidna: the Western long-beaked echidna, Sir David's long-beaked echidna and the Eastern long-beaked echidna.
All mammals have a backbone. Therefore, the two mammals which lay eggs both have backbones. The platypus and the echidna are the only two egg-laying mammals in existence.
Neither of the two egg-laying mammals lays their eggs in water. The platypus digs a burrow in the riverbank above the waterline, while the echidna actually deposits its egg di…rectly into a rudimentary pouch.
They are called monotremes.
No. Egg-laying mammals are monotremes.
Mammals which lay eggs are called monotremes. They include the platypus, short-beaked echidna and long-beaked echidna. However, there is no evidence that reptiles were ances…tors of the monotremes. Such a belief remains a theory, not fact.
No. A crocodile is an egg-laying reptile. A platypus is an egg-laying mammal.
The egg-laying mammals, or monotremes, are the platypus, the long-beaked echidna and the short-beaked echidna.
Egg laying mammals are monotremes. They belong to the order monotremata. They include the platypus and the echidna.
Yes. Platypuses, along with echidnas, are the only known egg-laying mammals, or monotremes. They lay soft-shelled, leathery eggs.
The animals which make up the group of egg laying mammals are known as monotremes, or members of the group monotremata. Platypuses and echidnas are the only members of this g…roup.
The order of mammals that lays eggs is Monotremata, or the monotremes. Platypus and Echidnas are the only monotremes, or mammals that lay eggs.
