Nutria | Coypu

Set of scaled elevation drawings of the Nutria (Coypu) in assorted postures

Also known as the Nutria, the Coypu (Myocastor coypus) is a rodent native to the subtropics of South America. The Coypu is known to spend its time both on land and in the water. As an herbivore, the Coypu feeds on vegetation and resides in burrows-- both of which are found along the banks of the marshes and lakes it inhabits.

The Coypu is similar in appearance to both the beaver and the rat, although larger in size, and has distinguishable features which includes coarse brown hair, webbed feet, a long round tail, and incisors of a vibrant orange color.

Nutrias have a height of 8.3”-11.8” (21-30 cm), body length between 16”-25” (41-64 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 10-35 lb (4.5-16 kg). The tail length of a Nutria is 10”-16” (25-41 cm). Nutrias have a typical lifespan of 4-7 years in the wild and up to 12 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.
