There are a variety of animals similar in nature to the muskrat, but the most common animals that bare a similarity to the muskrat are the groundhog and nutria.

Nutria is a large, aquatic rodent, native to tropical Americas. Similar to a very large muskrat.

The nutria, or more correctly, "coypu", is a large rodent of Central and South America, that resembles a really large muskrat. Introduced into many U.S areas, where they are labeled a pest.

Nutria are semi aquatic while groundhogs are terrestrial. Physically, nutria have webbed rear feet and a mostly hairless, long rounded tail while a groundhog has a furry tail and his feet are not webbed. Nutria also have more prominent whiskers than a groundhog and a whitish chin. if you can get a look at the animal's incisors, orange to reddish incisors are characteristic for nutria. Nutria can be distinguished from muskrats by their size (nutria are larger) and their tails. The hairless tail of a muskrat is laterally compressed (thinner from side-to-side than it is top dorsal to ventral) while the tail of the nutria is fully round.

No. Both are of the order Rodentia (rodents). A muskrat is of the Muridae family (rats and mice). A woodchuck is of the Sciuridae family (squirrels).

The species are, in descending order: muskrat, raccoon, opossum, nutria, beaver, coyote, mink, and gray and red fox

Nutria is a species of rodent similar to the muskrat. The species is endemic to South America and was imported in the US by E. A. McIlhenny (Tabasco sauce maker). He thought it would be a source of revenue for fur trappers. However, the pelt of the Nutria is not prized as a valuable fur and has little commercial value. This was an interesting question? Is this for homework?
