I'm hungry.
30 March 2009 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I know this was an odd summary, but while watching this short documentary about the huge over-population problem with nutria in Louisiana, I kept wondering where I could get one to taste for myself! Perhaps I've been watching too much of Andrew Zimmern on the Travel Channel, but I found myself thinking how nice it would be to find a restaurant in my part of the country that featured this giant rat-like creature on the menu! As for the film, it's a decent little introduction to the common nutria and it discusses a wide range of topics about the little beast--such as its becoming a nuisance creature, how it got to the US in the first place, nutria cuisine and pop culture and the nutria. About the only thing it didn't talk about (and I wished it had) is that the critter is NOT the same thing as a muskrat--though they look about the same to me.

Overall, fascinating and a little-discussed part of our American culture that's worth seeing for yourself.
