COY-PU RAT—I would like to have some information relative to the Coy-pu Rat. Where is it found; how is it trapped?
The coy-pu rat inhabits the southern half of South America. It is a water animal and in habits resembles the beaver and the muskrat. Its length is about 20 inches or two feet exclusive of the tail which is long and round like that of the true rats. The fur resembles that of the beaver and when beaver fur was used in the manufacture of hats, this fur, known as “nutria,” was used as a substitute. I do not know how they are trapped.
