Nutrias of Prague
Prague guide

One of the remarkable phenomena in Prague are animals, and we are not talking about the Prague Zoo, which is one of the largest and most interesting zoos in the world, but about those animals that roam freely around the city.

For example, such animals are Nutria.

Quite often, Nutrias are found near Manesuv Most along with birds (ducks, pigeons and swans), where they are fed by tourists and locals. Although environmentalists warn that feeding nutria is not worth it, as this leads to an excessive growth in their population. The problem with this is that nutria are an invasive species and have no natural enemies in the Czech ecosystem. But usually this does not stop anyone, and most do not know about it.

And few people can stop in front of a cute fluffy who begs for food like that.

If you look for information in other blogs, you can find out that nutria spoil gardens, eat cabbage, etc. And residents even specially feed them so that they do not roam around the gardens. Well, they eat carrots or apples.

Since nutria are aquatic inhabitants, they can be found along the coast of the Vltava, as well as in the area of \u200b\u200bfish farmers. For example, in the area of the Kiysky Rybnik. Sometimes they go there in whole herds.
