Squee: Wells with Platypus

I was looking for scholarly comments on race and colour in H.G. Wells’ The Island of Doctor Moreau, which is one of my SF/F class reading this week.  I found this thesis by Bill Hutchison, and I found this photo of Wells with a platypus.  And there was much squeeeeeeing.
