This is not the first muskrat photo we have shared taken by Tony LePrieur, and it probably won't be the last. Because look at that sweet baby – as if it just walked about of a Beatrix Potter book. Tony has a great knack for coaxing the cuteness out of these creatures (those hands!) – and we never get tired of them. Obviously a case of muskrat love.
