Colony of giant swamp rats invade Texas park
FORT WORTH, Texas – What has a large, flat tail, hind webbed feet and orange teeth? According to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, a swarm of these swamp rats, or otherwise known as nutria, were spotted at Krauss Baker Park in Fort Worth this week. Edit: the link in the comments says it’s Krauss Baker Park - is that the one behind Ihop off Altamesa?! Swamp rats live along the San Antonio River Walk“The reason for the thriving population of nutria in Krauss Baker Park is that people are feeding them at this location. Although they’re active year-round, it’s uncommon for the rodents to gather in a group this large in Texas, according to Richter.
