You have not seen a wharf rat (Rattus norvegicus), They can reach 16 inches in length. Norway rats average 16 inches in length and weigh over a pound. The ones I saw by the river didn't weigh any measly pound. Darn things were the size of a dog!

that looks like a nutria or river rat. they have them in the U.S. and not uncommon to be seen in the swamps and bayous of the south.



according to this wiki they are found over many place in the world.


The coypu (from the Mapudungun, koypu),[2][3] (Myocastor coypus), also known as the river rat, [4] and nutria,[1][5] is a large, herbivorous, semiaquatic rodent and the only member of the family Myocastoridae. Originally native to subtropical and temperate South America, it has since been introduced to North America, Europe, Asia, and Africa, primarily by fur ranchers.[6] Although it is still valued for its fur in some regions, its destructive feeding and burrowing behaviors make this invasive species a pest throughout most of its range.

Yes, could be a muskrat. But the sickest thing about the post, and about threads of other animals, is somebody in their home countries always wants to eat them.

i think it is a nutria,

this from the wiki i posted.

Three distinguishing features are a white patch on the muzzle, webbed hind feet, and large, bright orange-yellow incisors.


then look at the right hand bottom corner of the video preview screen.

see the orange yellow teeth.

ETA: also if you scroll to :24sec mark in the video, the rear feet appear to be webbed

You beat me to it!

I know people that trap them and sell their meat and hides to the fish market- and people do buy it and eat it. You can buy fresh raccoon there as well as rabbit, alligator, crawfish, squirrel meat and any sort of fish you can imagine. Fact is stranger than fiction...

Have you ever heard of trench rats? During WW1 many times the trenches soldiers fought in became their graves along with food scraps that had been discarded. Rats infested the trenches they also grew to enormous sizes. Sometimes they would become brazin and try to eat resting soldiers. The diseases they could carry made them just as dangerous as bullets. There were reports of rats the size of large dogs.

If I remember correctly, didn't the Louisiana government encourage people to hunt and eat nutria rats? I recall them having an over population and tried to convince people they were good to eat, hence the name "nutria" as in "nutritious".

No thanks, I'm good...

Yeah, it looks like a nutria. We have some around here. OTOH, nutria are fine eating.
