Muskrat Lunch

Posted by Kirk

One of the first Muskrats out in the early spring of 2012 in Minnesota. I went out to record frogs at lunch and this little guy demanded to be photographed instead. Western Chorus frogs are singing in the background and the camera also recorded the call of the first Northern Leopard Frog of the season as well. If you know your calls you might be able to pick it out of the background noise. This is early for Muskrats to be out and early for Chorus Frogs as well. It is freakishly early for Leopard Frogs. This is a very strange spring. Though it almost looks like it has been sped up, this is normal speed. Muskrats use a very fast gnawing motion to eat.
