Rolo had only been out of the nesting burrow for two days when this image was taken.
He made his acting debut in The Platypus Guardian, starring as the unnamed juvenile platypus that emerges and rolls around at the end of the documentary. Rolo features in our upcoming documentary Becoming Platypus
Name origin: He rolled around a lot as a juvenile!
