A coypu stuffed seen in the museum of the waterland park of Vrouwenpolder. It's an animal native to south America and introduced among others in Europe by the fur ranchers. It has numerous names : nutria (Us, Asia and eastern Europe countries), beverrat (Netherlands), ragondin (France), castorino (Italy), wasserratte (Germany), ratao-do-banhado and caxingui (Brazil). The coypu somewhat resembles a very large rat, or a beaver with a small tail. Coypu meat is lean and low in cholesterol. They're the host for a nematode parasite (Strongyloides myopotami) that can infect the skin of humans, causing dermatitis

This little creature is quite colorful, and looks like he could be straight from the pages of Alice in Wonderland or some such story! Of course, thats a lot to do with his positioning by the taxidermist, but its a fun and educational result!
All the best

This little chap looks very Beaver like and I can just imagine him swimming around the edge of a river and making a dam. Amazing looking feet with very sharp looking claws. Nice clear shot showing fine details of this little chap.

Nice details of the fur and claws in insufficient light. Good colors.
I have never seen this. Thanks for sharing with a good note.
With Best wishes

Looks as a big mouse, Miguel, not the kind anybody would be glad to encounter on a dark area...
Good view through the glass with no back-reflection.

Effective tight framing and good use of available light sans flash. I would have tried to include all of the tail. Looks a little like a close relative to a guinea pig. Adequate sharpness but could be better. Colour is looking natural and a very informative attached note. Tfs!

Me gusta tu composicion, aunque este animal no me gusta mucho, pues se parece demasiado a las ratas. Quizas el pelo de este animal es mas denso.
Un perfecto colorido muy natural.
Una imagen muy luminosa y con una óptima nitidez.
Disfruta de un buen fin de semana.
Saludos muy cordiales.
