p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · A large semiaquatic rodent....Nutria


I was at one of our local ponds the other evening hoping to find some Little Green Herons, when out of nowhere pops up this very large Nutria. At first sight you'd think wow it's a beaver but not the case, this is more of a true rodent, hairless long tail, can weigh up to 20 lbs. Apparently it's quite damaging to the aquatic systems doing much more damage than beavers. It's proper name is Coypu, but goes by Nutria in this part of the world.

Nicely done Louie - especially that first image. I would hate to have to deal with those teeth!

alien invasive species that was introduced -- IIRC, McIhenny (Tabasco) had them in cages at Avery Island, LA and a hurricane smashed the cages open

they do billions in damage...

A muskrat on steroids, similar lifestyle also. Crest whiting toothpaste could use this fellow in an advertisement (as before, not after).

Nice set Louie. They are a huge nuisance in our area. They get int drainage canals and weaken the banks. At one point they put a bounty on them. The damage they do the marsh is horrendous.

Louie, nice set.
Do they cull them up there or is it to late?

Thanks Tim, I'm not a ware of any efforts to eliminate them, but there sure should be one.
