A Century-long MysteryBook - 2009
In 1798, the Governor of Australia came across an odd-looking animal. It had a bill like a duck, a tail like a beaver, and webbed feet with claws. He shipped the mysterious creature to scientists in England. Perhaps they could figure out what it was. Little did the Governor of Australia know that it would take scientists almost 100 years to fully unravel the mystery of what this rare creature was and how it lived. Book jacket.
