MUSKRATS We have been starting to see these animals more and more on the ranch. They build these big, dome looking huts on our meadows and lakes. Muskrats are semi-aquatic mammals. Muskrats like wetlands, ponds,lakes and marshes. Muskrats are omnivores, but they mainly like plant-based diets. Muskrats are most active at twilight. Muskrat females give birth to 2-3 litters per year, with each birth having 4-8 pups. Muskrats are monogamous breeders. They have mates and families. Muskrats are excellent swimmers. They can swim backwards or forwards. They have webbed back feet. Baby muskrats are born hairless and blind. Muskrats are one of the most trapped animals in history. Muskrats play important roles in our ecological systems. Muskrat meat is considered a delicacy in some regions. ***** Did you learn anything about muskrats?
