Ondatra zibethicus


Short thick brown fur and the body and tail about 2'. Body is about a foot long with the tail being the rest.


Fresh water pond on the Golf Course. Looked like it was working on its home near where the pond had been recently excavated for the Fire Department. It was taking grass of the banking and working it in his mouth.
