Muskrat love at Jamaica Pond

Otter in Jamaica Pond

Moby Carp has company: Jameson Brown was walking around Jamaica Pond today when he looked down and spotted this furry criter cruising towards shore.

Jameson said it appeared to be an otter - it seemed too small for a beaver and its home "seemed more otter-like too, a hole more than a lodge."

But local wildlife aficionado Jef Taylor says, no, that's a muskrat.

How did it get there?

After all, we're not Germany, so we don't have any otterbahns.

OK, I'll see myself out ...

Confirmation comes in the form of the tweet I've linked to by somebody who knows these things.

Hank Hill-style "NAAHHHHH!!!"

Sorry, one of those songs I pretty much detested when it first came out in the daze of my yoot, and time has not much softened my contempt.
But in the Shameful Confessions Department, I will admit that I actually watched (out of morbid fascination or boredom, I guess) bits of their short-lived TV variety show. I even recall them doing "Muskrat Love," and at one point in the song there was a sequence that showed C&T in muskrat costumes cavorting with each other. I think that was pretty much it for me.

I don't hold muskrats responsible, though.

Adam gets so excited about anything animal related. It renews my faith in humanity. :)
