Beavers and muskrats


Like its bucktoothed buddy, the muskrat is unseen but on the go all winter, swimming beneath the lake ice, feeding on cattail roots. When it wants to rest, it slips up into its water-access lodge of reeds via a porthole in the floor. If you spot something that looks like a haystack in your cottage marsh, a muskrat may be snuggled up inside.
