    Platypi is technically the incorrect plural for the Platypus.
    I see.

    So what's technically the correct plural?

    There is no universally accepted term but it is either Platypuses or simply Platypus (like sheep). If you want to follow greek plurals in could also be Platypodes, but Platypi is pseudo-Latin.

    Platypuses are my specialty on facts.

    Octopus has two valid plurals. Octopodes and Octopuses. Octopi is not technically correct because Octopus is Greek in origin, not Latin.

    Steve Buscemi was a firefighter before he became an actor. He volunteered on 9/11, and he never really talked about it until another firefighter brought it up. Super cool guy, really humble.
