Wild Wednesday, Muskrat

The Muskrat looks like a baby beaver. (We had a Beaver on the pond, click here to read about it.)We always have a few Muskrats gliding along the surface of our pond. They are cute little animals, like an otter, always dragging bits of grass or reed along as they swim, like they're boasting a flag. They are in the rodent family, semi-aquatic. And are so named because of a "musky odor" that they emit. Click here to hear their sound.
