Muskrats are cute and cool. I’m going to tell you some cool facts about muskrats that trappers use to their advantage.
First of all. Muskrats are cute and look like beavers.. but they also look like rats.. Muskrats are called MUSKrats because they have a smelly gland that they spread around (just like beavers and their castor) to mark their territory. They were originally called musk-beavers because their tails are flattened like a beaver (not round like a rat), however their name was changed to muskrat because of their similarities to rats.
Muskrats create houses just like beavers do. Made out of vegetation, sticks, and mud, and they all live inside these houses. Some muskrats dig holes in the sides of banks and live in a big burrow in the side of the river bank. Muskrat houses aren’t hard to spot, they look like this:If you bust a small hole in a house, the muskrat(s) will come out to fix it, and this is a good place to put a trap for them because they will always come out to patch it up if they’re using that house.Muskrat holes (sorry, idk a better word for them) are harder to spot. If a muskrat hole has been heavily used, you can see it easier from the surface because the edges will be very defined:However, if the hole is newer or deeper, many times you won’t be able to see it at all. You can find these by looking for “runs” in the water (if the water isn’t cloudy). A muskrat “run” is basically just a concave divot in the mid at the bottom of the water. Muskrats swim along the bottom of water so they create these trails as they go along.The lighter colour dirt in the picture below is the muskrats “run”:
Muskrats are very neat and don’t like to shit where they sleep - just like raccoons. Like raccoons, muskrats have designated shitting areas. Usually they will have a worn down, flat place that they can take dumps on. These shit-platforms serve as a resting spot for aquatic birds as well, so a well-managed muskrat habitat is good for the environment:(top of the picture, those black things on the dirt)Muskrats also have what is called a “feedbed”. Basically, they chew up vegetation and pile it all together, and then they go onto it and eat it whenever they’re hungry. These are easily identified when vegetation is alive because the bright green shoots bunched up (kind of looks like someone recently mowed the lawn) stand out against the water:However, during the winter months, feedbeds can look gross and a bit like this:

Anyways, muskrats are cute and cool

Fuck I’m walking downtown and I pass a group of guys staring at me and I think “great catcall time” but then one guy goes “you look like you could kill a man a million different ways with just your bare hands”. This. This is an acceptable comment to give a girl on the street.
