Ondatra zibethicus
I snapped this photo of a Muskrat swimming in the Duck Pond at Fountain City. Unfortunately, I had to take it quickly with my little pocket camera, so the photo is a bit blurry. I didn't have room in my trunk to bring my good camera.
The muskrat was diving for pieces of bread the ducks and geese didn't eat! Normally, they eat plants. It is common to see muskrat holes near lake and stream banks.
