Fun fact! The muskrat is named for its pungent odor and its resemblance to a rat! Muskrats live in burrows close to water and although the bulk of their diet comprises plant material, they also hunt fish, crayfish, frogs, and even small turtles, staying submerged for up to 20 minutes at a time! https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=...
