Bonn (Deutschland/Germany) - Freizeitpark Rheinaue - part 2

by Björn Roose November. 17, 2019 340 views

You'll find a short introduction to the former capital of Germany in the previous post. In this post we'll continue our walk through the Freizeitpark Rheinaue with some photos of animals which have been eradicated in Flanders and - I think - major parts of Western Europe: the ondatra zibethicus or muskrat (which is, despite of its name, a kind of ... mouse, only a very big kind).

They were not easily scared, by the way. At least twenty people were portraying them, but they didn't stay more than two metres away.

At  first I thought they were Nutria Rats and that EU had started to have to deal with this scourge. It looks like it was a cool encounter.#2 made me think of Master Splinter.

There's, apparently, nutria rats in Europe too, and they are considered a "scourge" (that's why they are actively eradicated in Flanders and a number of other countries). Then again, if we're gonna eradicate every "scourge", we should start with our own kind smile
