What is that thing?!?!?!



My friend found this thing swimming around in her backyard. They have wetlands in the back, so it's kind of like a swamp. If you can tell me what it is, you win. Put your guess in the comments. We figured it out. Her kids caught it by having it swim into the bucket. The thing is nasty!

It looks like Splinter, wasn't that the rat's name on Ninja Turtles? I didn't know he could swim.

How about an otter?

Noni Andrew said...

Maybe an otter? What did you do with it after you got though looking at it? Did you ever find out what it was? It reminds me the time the boys came home with a garter snake and it had a whole bunch of babies. Very interesting.

I'm pretty sure meerkats live in Africa. My friend doesn't live in Africa.

I think it's a muskrat. Anyway, it looks much more like a muskrat than a gopher:

My guess is a muskrat!! LOL Wait..I guess that is kind of cheating since it was in my yard! HA HA HA

Melissa said...

Well, since Deann basically gave it away, yes it is a muskrat! Good Job Jenny. Darin cheated.
