Set of dimensioned elevation drawings of the Muskrat

The Muskrat, or Ondatra zibethicus, is a rodent of medium size native to North America. It typically inhabits wetlands and marshes, marking its territory with musk-- a strong scented secretion from the glands. The Muskrat makes for an excellent swimmer (even swimming backwards), and to aid itself in this, is equipped with a long, flat tail covered in scales which leaves a trail on the ground when on land.

As the name suggests, the Muskrat resembles that of a large rat, with thick brown-black fur, small facial features, and tiny front feet for digging.

Muskrats have a height of 4.5”-6.7” (11.5-17 cm), body length between 10”-15” (25-38 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 1.5-4.5 lb (.7-2 kg). The tail length of a Muskrat is 7”-11” (18-28 cm). Muskrats have a typical lifespan of 2-4 years in the wild and up to 10 years in captivity.

Rodents are classified by a single pair of continuously growing incisors in both their upper and lower jaws; the length of their incisors are maintained by gnawing, which is how they eat. The diet of Rodents usually consists of seeds and plants, but some species do have more varied diets.
