Anyone have an idea as to what this is??<br><br>
My daughter saw it when she went to visit the town they will be moving to.<br><br>
The picture isn't that great because she took it from her cell phone, but hopefully you will get the idea. Thanks! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Looks like some kind of marmot (same family as the Groundhog).

Ah..it does look like that, karen.<br><br><br><br>
This of course, begs the real question:<br><br><br><br>
Is it Muskrat Suzy or Muskrat Sam? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p">

I vote for muskrat, too. We have them here.<br><br><br><br>
Muskrats have a tail that is sort of flattened from side-to-side, that is, it's flattened the opposite way that a beaver's is (top-to-bottom). Nutria are bigger and have round tails.

Well, Nutria are actually cuter than the muskrat! They look a little like a beaver!<br><br><br><br>
Thanks everyone!
