2024 Reader Question 130 published on 33 Comments on 2024 Reader Question 130

This isn’t the first time someone has suggested that the platypus is a weird gryphon, but I think it is much more interesting that they are normal, mundane animals! No magic needed to produce this little weirdo.

Don’t forget to check out the Kickstarter!!!

Haha, But what if they were griffon and paired up with mallard duck?

Or vulture/Hyena

Bearded vulture and striped hyena would be my combo of those two. The patterns and mohawk would be fantastic.

And Bearded Vultures aren’t naturally red, they like to paint themselves red with pigment, so it’d be neat to know if their griffins would be inclined to some sort of related hobbies or interests.

Could we get a platypus that’s been magically given an education, so that we can have a magical platypus too?

Maybe with a wizard hat that looks oddly similar to a fedora?

Really quick question. I’m not sure if you’ve already answered this, but what kind of griffon is that guy from Exchanges? I just finished re-reading it and for the life of me can’t remember his name. Bryce? He’s the blue mohawk guy who fights Jack at the end. In his character blurb it says he is an Uncommon Gryphon, but not what bird/feline bits he is. Sorry about the super long comment. If anyone knows, please answer and if not, could you do a reader question of this Kory?

I have two pictures you HAVE to see! Our Local Amusement park is going to have an attraction called “Cryptid Land” as part of their Halloween event this year. They have the front and the signage up, I saw this and though Holy Hell she has to see this!

I can see some of the magical critters being *absolutely unable to cope* with the idea of the platypus being a mundane natural critter.
“Someone MUST have done magic on it!”

Platypuses are shown to have split (from echidnas) “19–48 million years ago”. Unless it’s a fact that magic was not yet around back then, how would you disprove it having been involved?

Am I making this up or was the platypus basically considered a cryptid until there was concrete evidence found of their existence?

Technically no, because the taxidermied platypuses brought back to Europe were concrete evidence but the scientists were so incredulous that they kept searching them for those “apparently amazingly fine” seams where the taxidermist had “sewn different animals together”; hence, they were considered cryptids/fakes well beyond that point.
