Myocastor coypus, thanks to Jean-Marie (Nephrotome2) for the identification.

Dutch name: Beverrat or Nutria
French name: Ragondin

The Coypu, or Nutria is a large, herbivorous semiaquatic rodent and the only member of the family Myocastoridae. Originally native to temperate South America, it has since been introduced to North America, Europe, Asia and Africa, primarily by fur ranchers.

This picture was taken in the zoo in Amersfoort.

Hi Mariki,
nice point of view....I like the way the wood frames the furry bunch....good depth of field and well exposed....they look so snug in their nest.

hi Marie Christine,
beautiful image of these sleeping little animals, they all seem dreaming something nice, the composition and the colours are very nice too, brava

Bonsoir Marie-Christine
Je n'avais pas vu cet hotel 'Marmottes'
Extra ... Elles sont sympathiques.
merci à bientôt

Attention. Ce sont des ragondins et non des castors. les deux vivent sauvages en France et aux Pays-Bas. La queue qu'on ne voit pas ici est tres differente: ronde comme celle des rats et non plate.
