This little muskrat was the soul survivor of a nest destroyed during shoreline construction. His rescuers drove him to me in hopes of getting him back to the wild. They had taken very good care of him until that time, making my job easier.
He still has a ways to go, but is recognizing all his natural foods already. Still hesitant to swim in ‘deep’ water but loves to wade around in a imitation marsh I provide to him each day.
