Albino Coypu - resting, 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. Very strange looking creatures, I find it incredible that they can eat with those teeth! Posted one year ago
    1. Everything is relative, Claire :)

      Buru Babirusa, tusk warrior One of the freakiest animals I have yet seen. Note how one of its tusk pierces straight through their upper jaw. At an older age, they may even grow back into its skull. Antwerpen,Babyrousa babyrussa,Belgium,Buru Babirusa,Europe

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.
