Platypus track their prey using electric current.
“Platypus” by Alan Couch cc2.0

Platypus bills are equipped with electroreceptors which allow the platypus to track prey using electric current, in a similar way that sharks detect their prey.
The platypus then scoops up the insect or the shrimp with its bill, and stores it in a pouch in its cheek, keeping it there until it reaches the surface where it feeds. (Taken from ‘25 Australian Animals‘)
