I'm not a rat!

Muskrats are not rats at all they are actually the largest member of the vole family. They are also not an animal that we are specifically hunting for on our safaris. However, when cute mammals are nearby we will always stop and have a look. This pair of Muskrats were feeding on Cattail stems near the Flat Creek turnout. They also spent some time grooming themselves and each other before swimming off to gather more food. The warm weather in Jackson Hole this February has melted the ice on flat creek. Swans, ducks, and other critters have returned to take advantage of the open water.
