Cotton Rat



Gray rodent with a fleshy tail, brown nose black eyes and white underside.


Fields, more precisely cotton fields. They get their name from the nests they build are made of cotton.


I spotted this at St Marks National Wildlife Reserve. There was an explosion of these rats. I've never seen them and then all of a sudden there were about a dozen.
