  16. Based on what looks like a brown body and a hairless, black tail… I’m going with Common Muskrat…

  19. Chris Misavage's 3rd grade class

    The class thinks it an otter or maybe a mink due to the light color. Winter is coming so maybe the color clue could be a good one. It could be just the glare from the light too. Hmmm…

    Looks like a young beaver, flat looking tail.

    November 12, 2013 at 3:53 pm

  22. Alonso Abugattas

    I’m changing my mind now, doesnt look that flat a tail. it likely is an otter porpoising.

    I’m guessing Swan even tho I’ve never seen one in a dive.
