It's not a nutria Link (new window)
The body just doesn't look right and it's not big enough.

As someone who used to live in Louisiana, I'm inclined to think it is indeed a nutria, though the photo isn't very clear.

Usually when people think they've found a giant rat, it's a nutria.

I once saw a nutria on Dauphine St. in the French Quarter - pretty much the last place you expect to find a nutria poking around. But there he was, an arrogant little farker strutting between 4am transvestites and gutter punks. Probably should have bought him a drink.

Why use bullets to kill it? You just waste them, and they are so rare to find most of the time.

Simply use Moira's stick

Yeah .. thats a Nutria or a kapi.. In New Orleans we call it dinner. I've eaten quite a few of these guys. Awesome in a long marinade with lemons and capers. In their prime age (3-4yrs) they are SO tender and oh so yummy. The kapi can get up to 140lbs.. massive rodents. The nutria is a smaller version (about 20-30lbs max) and all over the swamps of Louisiana. I grew up eating them.

Do nutrias have tails, though?

Out west here, a "rat" that big is what we call a possum. Nasty disgusting animals.

It's the obvious lack of reference in the frame as to the size of the rat, I believe it is no more than 10" nose to tail, the guy is holding it towards the camera on a long stick. Of course it's going to look huge when shot that way.

Well, that just stopped me from visiting New Orleans...

They could clear the brush around their house and remove a lot of the hiding places...

I think Antarctica would be last place I'd expect to find a nutria.

Meh. We call those mice in Texas. Some areas in TX have rats so big the kids ride them to school when they miss the bus.

Those are harmless. I'd get one as a pet, but i'm not sure I could handle a 140 lbs rodent. Feeding it would cost a fortune.
