Training with Shankar
This nutria climbed up out of the adjacent channel within 6 feet of us. It is clearly used to people on the trail. We'd seen it munching on bulrushes along the channel margin a few minutes earlier.
Two individuals were seen along the trail next to the "Water Delivery Channel", about 0.4 mi W of the visitors center. Beautiful pale turquoise stripe down back, light blue belly, and light brown "cheek" patches.
