muskrat controlAll About Muskrats - Facts


The muskrat is a rabbit sized aquatic rodent native to North America. It has partially webbed hind feet and small able hand-like front feet with a laterally compressed tail and a waterproof coat.


Muskrats live in wetlands and are very good swimmers, using their tail for propulsion in the water. They tend to dig extensive burrow systems in the ground, adjacent to the water, with underwater entrances.
