Aha, a nutria, coypu or in Dutch beverrat.The difference between a muskrat and nutria are the teeth, the muskrat's are yellowish and the nutria's orange.Too there are the whiskers, muskrat's are black and nutria's are white, also a muskrat does not show any ears.Average weight of the muskrat is 1,1 kilo, compared to this one the nutria is a giant with it's average of 6-7 kilo.The nutria is relative tame, they might be attracted by a carrot.Never try to pat the thing on the head, seen to its origin from South America it expects a bird of prey from above.
Thank you ever so much for teaching me this. I am not sure about this animal's teeth tho :SI will have a closer look soon as I am in a position to do so ;)
