As if the incredible feet of this muskrat weren't enough, there's also that expression.

We love all animals here at TreeHugger, even ones that may have some destructive-to-human habits and are named for musky rats. Aside from that, muskrats have some wonderful qualities as well – they are monogamous and stay with the same mate for life and they also play an important role in their ecosystem. Plus, those little feet-hands! Thank you to Tony LePrieur for this especially well-done portrait taken in Weaselhead Park, Calgary AB.
