three baby nutrea have arrived here and I have them outside in the old rabbit hutch with a big tupperware bowl that will double as their swimming pool. For those who do not know, Nutrea were brought here from South America and they quickly over populated the area. They eat everything they see, not like the beavers or otters who are selective grazers. These babies are big enough that they don't need a bottle, but not big enough that they would survive on their own without mom. I just piled the hutch high with long grasses, and they will make short work of them. They are cute, their tail is more like a rat than a beaver otherwise they look pretty similiar.
