well, if naiant means swimming, I don't think that is likely because of the position of legs and tail.
I would blazon it Vert, a platypus statant bendwise sinister bill towards base and tail embowed Or Does that seem right?

The platypus should correctly be blazoned either statant (if on land) or naiant (if in swimming mode). In HMAS Platypus' case it would be statant.
