This is ridiculous!

So, I just finished posting about the mink, and I look up, and he’s back! No! Wait! What’s wrong with his tail?!? And why does he walk so strangely? And why no bubbles when he dives?

I never see animals like this in the pond, and now two different ones in the space of a few hours? How unusual.

I guess that this one is a muskrat, given that his tail is rat-like, rather than beaver-like, and given that he eats vegetation, which an otter or mink would not allow to pass their lips.

The photograph is not great, but you get the idea:
