Cool photos. We have Nutria here as well. The first time I saw one, I wasn't sure what it was. They are very interesting to watch when in the water and swim very much like an otter or beaver.
Thanks so much p.young!
You have some great photos!!
the orange teeth in the second picture differentiates it from a musk rat.
I can imagine.Warst Du schon mal in den Maaren tauchen?
normaly i go for diving in our lakes but sometimes its also nice just go out for snorkeling! Our lakes have so much life and most of them are really wonderful!!
I had the same question. Cool catch!I didn't know anyone snorkels in German lakes ;-)!
Thanks Palaimon! I've been finding it interesting to see how this species is treated in the different areas it inhabits since most areas it does inhabit are not its native territory.
I did this picture when i was snorkeling in a small lake near Karlsruhe.
Hi annorion, this guy was spotted in the wild. I dont think that they get hunted and not for food. I try to find more informations
I'm curious...was this guy spotted in the wild? If so what is the general stance on the nutria/coypu in the area this pic was taken? Are they hunted for food or fur there?
