What Animal Am I?

It’s What Animal Am I Wednesday! Can you guess what this animal might be?

Well, hello there! You’re thinking I’m looking a bit ratty, hey? But, huh, I don’t belong to the Rat family, although you wouldn’t be the first to make that mistake.

I’m amphibious, which means I’m suited to live on both land and water. But I’m not a frog! Frogs don’t have fur like me. I’m proud of my deep brown fur.

In the wild I would only live for about five months but if I’m kept at a zoo or a sanctuary I might live up to two and a half years.

Get this … I am protected in England as a threatened species but I’m considered an agricultural pest on the European continent! I guess that’s because I’ve got a lot of family members there and we do like to munch on crops.

Can you guess who I am?
