Platypus SEAL Team

Mimbres Man posted this on Facebook. It was drawn by one of his younger students. Normally I avoid cross posting (yeah, right) but this one is too good. Not only is there a lot going on, the whole concept of a platypus SEAL team is really pretty hard to beat. No adult could come up with it without ingesting hallucinogens. And yes, that is an Automatic Kalashnikov Model 1947 below the 'chute. And I'm guessing the 'pus on bridge is manning John Browning's Model 2 .50 caliber, as is the chopper nose-gunner. The lad certainly knowns his weaponry, and his monotremes.

Being Military Brat I started my art career by dad teaching me how to draw an F100 Super Sabre Jet. Air Force you know.

Piloted by a enchidna?

The kid is 10 years old, a 5th grader. We are studying animals and he is diagnosed with ADD so this is pretty good work from him.
I laughed when he presented it to me. We talked it over and stuff. I really like the water in the drawing.

The water IS very good, almost professional. It looks wet.

I'm pretty sure that a platypus (Australian) special forces team would use a Heckler & Koch MP5.

Tony,
You'd be wrong. The young lad specifically asked his teacher how to draw an AK-47.
