Native RatHydromys chrysogaster

Rakali or Water Rat

The Australian water-rat (Hydromys chrysogaster) is a genuine native rodent that was a natural part of our environment long before its pest cousins - the black rat and brown rat - arrived with the early colonists.  The water-rat (also known as rakali) is an extremely attractive mammal.  Its thick coat of soft fur, dense whiskers, blunt muzzle, partly webbed hind feet, and furry tail, all help create a resemblance to a miniature otter.
