Muskrats are closely related to beavers, but a few inches smaller. Muskrats have little hairs that are waterproof, and the hair that is called protective guard hair is long and brown. The muskrat has webbed feet for swimming. They burrow in the banks of a river or in marshes. They have families of up to six babies in a litter. Photo courtesy U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
