Also, it reminds me of a muskrat and I have fond memories of muskrats from my childhood. We have a creek that runs right beside my family home. For many years we had muskrats that had a little den about 10 feet from the side door and one summer one of the babies took a liking to me. It would then follow me around the yard and I would put out carrots for it to munch on. I could never get close enough that I could hand-feed it and I wouldn't have even if I could since that has always been a big no-no in my wildlife rule book.
