These can be found in most fresh water streams even drainage ditches on farms. We had a real problem with these when I was growing up on the farm.

This is a striking image of this Muskrat Donny and beautifully captured.

Goodness!!! What a great picture you've taken of this Muskrat Donny!!!

You've captured such lovely detail in his wet fur - very well done my friend.

A superbly-detailed shot of this muskrat, Donny. It looks very much like one we've got over here. I think it was introduced from the States and it is considered a pest and is culled on a regular basis.

Beautifully captured Donny! I've never heard of one on our lake but we do have the larger otters.
