8/6/10 ~ Top Ten in the Welcome PA Challenge Summer fun in PA
Take your pick! Either way, this young muskrat was spotted munching down ‘greens’ one late summer evening (7/24/09) in the canal on the Towpath Trail at Wildwood Lake in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
Muskrats are a medium-sized semi-aquatic rodent native to North America that are commonly found in wetlands, areas in or near salt and fresh-water marshlands, rivers, lakes or ponds. They are most active at night or near dawn and dusk and they feed mainly on aquatic vegetation such as cattails.
