  4. Well it is...

    a Nutria

    Nutria are valued furbearers. Characterized by dense grayish underfur and long glossy guard hairs, wild nutria vary in color from dark brown to yellowish brown.

    Nutria is similar to beaver, it is often sheared for a sporty, more lightweight feel. Underfur is very soft and plush. A popular fur for linings and trims. It is frequently dyed in a variety of colors.
  5. Nice shot Klaus. I remember when the started a number of Nutria farms here in the USA. I haven't heard much about them of late.
