  1. Okay so as we know platypus are brown in colour but i have seen a red coloured Platypus in my dream, it was so beautiful, that platypus was just swimming in water stream and then came out of water for sometime and then it goes back to the water and repeatedly doing this, i want to know what my dream means, is there any thing which that red coloured Platypus wants to tell me..?

  2. That’s strange. My dream was somewhat similar to Laura’s.
    I was in a small dark room. There was some daylight shining through from a window around a corner.
    I was laying down on my stomach on a light grey ceramic tiled floor (4 inch square tiles in a grid pattern), looking across at a dark navy blue tiled wall (4X6 wall tile (like what you buy at home dep0t)).
    Across from me emerged the shape. It looked like a duck. As I looked down, I realized it had furry paws.
    Then suddenly, I heard what sounded like a stick of dynamite exploding. And the duck was Gone.
    Considering the small size of the room and the tiled surface, I realized it was a shot from a rifle, and the duck had to be a platypus because of it’s paws. Then I woke up.

  3. I have just woken up from a weird dream… I was talking to someone when a loud bang came from a distance (the group of people in the distance were familiar people from school) and with that bang, something hurt and vulnerable came running towards me, almost squealing for love and attention… it was hurt and I suspected it had a shot wound in its back. As it got closer I discovered it was a platypus, I was unsure of whether to comfort the animal because I had no idea of their temperament but I stroked it and gave it a hug, as doing so I woke up at 3am which is strange as I never wake up through the night. Does anybody have any idea as to what this dream may symbolise? Thank you.
