nutria

nutria I'm amazed at all the different creatures we have in our neighborhood.

Of course there are all sorts of different birds (ducks, herons), and we sometimes see a carp swimming around in the river.

We also have fireflies during the summer.

The other day as I was crossing over a footbridge, I noticed what looked like a rabbit feeding on some grasses below near the river.

I stopped to look at it because I've never seen a rabbit down near the river.

Sorry the picture is teeny but that was as far as my iPhone's lens could zoom in.

It was my first time seeing a creature like this and after searching the internet it turns out that it was a nutria.

Here's a link on Wikipedia (apparently it is also called coypu), there's even a short video there as well.

Love technology!

Hope you have a nice weekend.
