P is for Pavlova, Platypus and Pie
Pavlova is a summer dessert and a fave to have after a BBQ. Made from whipped egg white and sugar and baked, it is then laden with cream and fresh summer fruits. Yum.
The platypus (an Aussie native) is a monotreme - a mammal that lays eggs. Semi-aquatic it has a duck-like bill and webbed feet. While both males and females are born with ankle spurs, the male spur has venom (strong enough to kill a small dog but not fatal to humans).
