While we were shopping on our trip, I was standing in the back of the Tommy Bahama Store looking out a window that faced a little ravine, when I saw a rather interesting looking animal. Unfortunately our camera was put away because we were clothes shopping so I couldn't get a good photo, but this is a quickie of it:
I thought it was something interesting.
And then last night while I was trolling the interwebs I just happened upon a photo of a Nutria or Coypu- which is basically a large American water rat, and rather unwanted and discovered that's what I saw in the little ravine behind the store!
Eeww. Not such a great discovery at all!
