Plato the Platypus lives in the rainforest of Tasmania, an Australian island. While diving in the river for food, he meets other animals who are confused by his appearance. They all think he needs to be more like them. Plato tries unsuccessfully to fly like a duck, eat like a Tasmanian devil, climb like a bearded dragon, crow like a rooster, and chew down trees like a beaver. In the end, he realizes he does not need to be like these animals. He only needs to be himself.
