Pet Platypus – AJ Eggstavaganza Pet!

The Eggstravaganza event is amazing for when you want to surprise yourself with random pets. During the event, you purchase Pet Eggs, which you keep for three whole days, after which they hatch into a random pet. The Pet Platypus is one of those pets.

The Pet Platypus was originally released on May 14, 2017, as part of the Eggstravaganza event. It was the first pet to hatch besides the original three, which are the Falcon, Alligator and Chick. Today, we are going to take a closer look at the Pet Platypus.

Pet Platypus Actions & Special Abilities

First of all, we will take a look at the actions and special abilities of the Pet Platypus. Just like any other pet, the Pet Platypus has its own set of actions. By clicking on the pet, it jumps up and does a tail flip in the air.

The sit action makes it down on all four of its legs. It looks like it is getting ready to sleep when it sits down.

The play action makes the pet pull out a banjo, and start playing it.

The dance action makes the pet swing around left and right, while its tail is moving up and down.

The sleep action makes the pet lay down and close its eyes. Animated Z’s appear above its head.

Lastly, the hop action makes the pet jump up and down, landing on all four of its legs.

How to Get a Pet Platypus in Animal Jam

As mentioned above, the Pet Platypus was made available during the Eggstravaganza event of 2017. It is not clear if it will keep returning during the event, but it is highly likely. Besides the event, you can also obtain the Pet Platypus by trading for it with other Jammers.


The cheapest way to obtain the Pet Platypus would be by waiting for the next Eggstravaganza event. During the event, you will have to purchase a Pet Egg, wait three days and hope for the Pet Platypus to hatch out of it. Keep in mind that it is not yet clear if the Pet Platypus will keep returning in future Eggstravaganza events.


If you rather obtain the Pet Platypus immediately, you could also find a trader that is willing to part ways with their pet. Even though the Pet Egg was originally sold for 3 Diamonds, it is currently much more valuable than that.

AJ Pet Platypus Codes

After searching the internet for Pet Platypus codes, I was unable to find any. It is highly unlikely for AJHQ to release codes for rare pets. If you really want one for yourself, you will have to trade for it.
