Mammals - Common Muskrat
Class:Mammalia Order:Rodentia Family:Cricetidae Genus:Ondatra


I found my first Muskrat at Shawnee Mission Park. It was gliding around in a lagoon. It appeared to be taking grass to a den built low in a bank.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
