Mac OS X Easter Egg - Ports Manager

I was wondering why the Utility "Ports Manager", an application that manages Darwin ports, didn't have an icon.

1) Control-click on Ports Manager, found in /Applications/Utilities/
2) Select "Show Package Contents"
3) Open "PortsManager.icns"

After it opens in Preview (or your default viewer), you will see a brown cartoon platypus with a red "devil ears" hat on, surrounded by a tri-rope border.

If anybody can ID the platypus or thinks they can, let me know and I can email you the file, since not many peope have the dev preview.

The platypus is most likely Hexley, the semi-official Darwin mascot. ( for more info)
