This in turn got me thinking further about outstanding features of other animals, like the giraffe’s neck, the tortoise’s shell, the pelican’s bill and the platypus’ … well, everything about the platypus. My train of thought then rumbled into Darwinian sidings- I thought that even dear old Chas would have to go somewhat to explain some of nature’s oddities, like the noggin of the hammerhead shark, why the rabbit is always twitching its nose and the whelk … I mean, what is that all about?

So, I thought, if Darwin’s theories are being stretched on these points, then maybe I can offer up my own thoughts upon the matter and, as I’d already been started off in that mode with our friend the baboon, what better vehicle could I use than the medium of poetry?Theres lots of different forms of poems used that attempt to answer question such as:Why is the flamingo pink?

Why does the llama spit? Why is the pigs tail curly? How did the puffin get its coloured beak? Where did the tortoise get its shell? Why is the duck-billed platypus ... well, why is the duck-billed platypus? And, of course ...Why is the baboons bum red?
