The nutria.

Seattle filmmakerDrew Christie has put together an amusing, and uh, educationalanimated short you’ll find on The New York Times website on the nutria, a rodent that invaded Lake Washington some time ago when some entrepeneurs thought they’d raise them and sell their furs.

That didn’t work out so much and the rodents eventually were released into the lake.

Some folks don’t want the critters here, but Christie makes the point that all of us are an invasive species in one form or another.

Have a look at the video. It’s quite the diversion.
