The winning name was announced by Maleny Chocolate Co. owner Troy Wainwright at Wildlife Queensland’s 20-year PlatypusWatch celebration on 22 October.
“We love it!” said Troy.
“Our Maleny platypus population calls Obi Obi Creek their home, which was named after Obi, a remarkable Aboriginal warrior. How perfect is that connection!”
Obi the Platypus made a brief appearance at the Wildlife Queensland Platy Party on 22 October 2023 (the visit was cut short for reasons you can probably guess! Yum!)
Obi the Platypus comes in white, milk, and dark chocolate varieties.
