Muskrat Love

Yesterday I headed to work and was going to get stuck in massive traffic. So I got off at the nearest exit... if I had gone past it the next exit isn't until right before my work. I took the back country roads that run parallel to the highway. I came down a little hill and spotted what we have now determined was a muskrat. He was a cute little bugger... carrying a branch in his mouth. He calmly waited for cars to pass and then motored in front of my car that thankfully I slowed and stopped for him to cross. Kind of like "coming through... coming through... I got things to do people... nests to build..." Lol.

I've never .... ever.... seen a muskrat. . . nor did I have any clue what one looked like! Do they have a lot in Canada?
