Muskrat


Muskrat, Ondatra zibethicus
We observed this individual on 19 June 2011 at the Mill Race Trail, St. Jacobs, ON. It swam ashore and chewed vigorously at the stream side vegetation until it had this substantial mouthful; then it re-entered the water and swam to the opposite bank where it disappeared under the water, presumably to its den.
