The first shot made me smile, good job. I have heard of a stratocaster but never a myocaster .

Sry,

In french we said : Ragondin or Myocastor.

These are Coypu.

The Coypu resembles a very large muskrat. Section of its tail is round when it is flattened in the muskrat.
It is recognizable by its four incisors oranges.
The female has two or three litters per year of about 5 or 7 small.
The breasts of the female are situated to one side, it can swim with the small breasts hanging on.

On my first pic : These are 5 small , 2 months old, approximately 1 Kg each

Adult : 6-9 Kg and 40-50 cm + 30 - 40 cm of tail.

If they are anything like muskrats, you definitely don't want one. Mean little creatures.

I like the scientific name: "muscle beaver."
