Muskrat & Duck Weed_JFF5373

Muskrat & Duck Weed_JFF5373

The large number of Muskrat lodges in the area mean this is prime Muskrat habitat. Good habitat means good food. This Muskrat (Ondatra zibethicus) reminded me of a vacuum cleaner as he used his paws to rapidly corral the tiny duckweed plants (Lemna sp.) close to his mouth and simply slurp them in.
