I’m Easily Impressed

May 24, 2007

Tonight I saw a nutria on the bank of the river while walking the dog. It was cute and let me get pretty close before it shot into the river.


We had nutria in North Carolina, but I never saw them. This rates right up with the hedgehogs in Crete – the first time I’d ever seen one outside a petshop.

Wikipedia says that nutria are South American but were imported to Europe for use in the fur industry; his fur was very nice indeed.
