Albino Coypu - smiling closeup, Zie-Zoo, Netherlands Zoo shot of an Albino Coypu. I&#039;m seeing lots of reference images online of white Coypus, I haven&#039;t been able to figure out why this is so common. Anyway, here we see one of the defining characteristics of the species: the deeply orange front teeth (Incisors). <br />

  1. Incredibly adorable <3. Fun fact - their teeth turn orange because the enamel contains iron. The iron makes the teeth stronger, but also turns them orange :) Posted 11 days ago
    1. I'm glad you added that as in the back of the mind I felt obliged to look up the reason, thanks :) Posted 11 days ago

The coypu , also known as the river rat or nutria, is a large, herbivorous, semiaquatic rodent and the only member of the family Myocastoridae. Originally native to subtropical and temperate South America, it has since been introduced to North America, Europe, Asia, and Africa, primarily by fur ranchers. Although it is still valued for its fur in some regions, its destructive feeding and burrowing behaviors make this invasive species a pest throughout most of its range.
