  Of course, the thing that's amusing about platypuses (platypi?) is
that they are, in fact, never gravid.  Sadly, none of the monotremes
have a name that starts with "g", so that rules this joke out (unless
someone knows a synonym for "gravid" starting with "p" or "e").

  I'd fall back to "gravid giraffe", which is at least an amusing mental
image. :)
