As was said - probably one of a relatively few remaining coypu.

We've had rats in our roof - think we've actually got rid of them now. One of the pleasures of living in the country in Spain. Includes such things as a snake in the kitchen, scorpions in the living room, and plenty of butterflies (fao Forum Ed).

Makes me feel a little better (but not much) about the never ending battle with field mice.
Here is a hot tip from me: If you are young or seeking a new career, have a think about Pest Control. Ants, Mice, Rats, Wasps.What do you reckon. As Global Warming takes effect, are things going to get better, or much, much worse....!

might be enough meat on them to start eating, they could be bred for the bar B Q like guinea pigs are in some countries.

Didn't know coypu had been culled.

They used to be quite common when I lived down south. People used to mistake them for otters.

I thought that they were just scarcer in Scotland.

Why did they cull them? Were they harmful?

And lizards climbing the walls, as we had when we had a villa in San Pedro.

Photo looks like the a fishermans photo when they hold the item out at arms length closer to camera to make it look a lot bigger. In this case on the end of a long piece of wood.

I remember Norfolk being the home of many coypu back in the 70's and one car rally I took part in was actually called The Coypu Rally. My driver reckoned he did not need my map reading skills as he only had to follow the trail of flat coypu in the road that been left by the earlier cars.

Coypu in some countries wreck riverbanks, may be why they were hunted down till there was no more.
