Nutria litter size

How many? Here's the answer. Ready to give birth soon. I'm guessing at least three litters per year.

Omg really  :yike: they are a huge pita in some places. They were introduced as a livestock option and are like the himilayan bkackberries of the mammsl world for invasive and need to be killed with fire.

What do you do with them? Can you eat them?
I knew we had them here, but had no idea they were around to that extent.

I'd at least try it, especially if it was cooked in a crock pot.

I would bet if you skinned them you would have second thoughts. Very strong smell to them. Supposedly it goes away when cooked but memory of the smell sticks with me.
There was a time they were worth a good price, as high as $17. Now you might get a couple bucks for a good one but you have to pay to ship it so really worthless. Good cat bait though.
