Russian Desman
Teddy Trendy Bears
The Russian desman (Desmana moschata) is a small semiaquatic mammal. It constructs burrows into the banks of ponds and slow-moving streams, but prefers small, overgrown ponds with abundance of insects, crayfish and amphibians. Despite its outward similarity to muskrats (a rodent), the Russian desman is actually part of the mole family.
