The nutria (also called ragondin) is a fur bearing herbivore native to South America that was first introduced into the wilds of Louisiana in the late 1930s, when animals were intentionally and/or accidentally released from fur farms. Nutria meat is a very lean red meat quite similar to rabbit meat and tastes like dark turkey meat. If you do not hunt, frozen nutria meat is available year round, and can be shipped nationwide. Serve over hot cooked rice, pasta or cream potatoes. From nutria.com.
