Caption: Coypu pair. The coypu (Myocastor coypus), or nutria, is a semi-aquatic herbivorous rodent that feeds on river plants and lives in burrows along the riverbank. It is native to South America but has been introduced to Europe, North America and Asia, where it has become well established. In most regions it is now considered a pest. Photographed at a breeding colony, Port Aransas, Texas, USA.
