On the sign:
זהו אחד היונקים הנפוצים ביותר בארץ, אף כי מוצאו אינו מישראל. הנוטריות יובאו מארגנטינה בתחילת שנות ה-50 של המאה העשרים לתעשיית הפרווה בצפון הארץ. כשהעניין לא צלח הן שוחררו ונפוצו בכל רחבי הארץ, והן נחשבות למין פולש.

הנוטרייה היא שחיינית בעלת שיני מכרסם בולטות זנב ארוך ועבה בשל חולדה. היא ניזונה מצמחים הגדלים במים או על הגדה וחיה במחילות שהיא חופרת בגדות מקווי מים.

Nutria (Coypu)
Although not originally from Israel, Nutrias are now among the country’s most widespread mammals. They were brought here in the early 1950s from Argentina to serve furriers in northern Israel. When that business failed, they were released, going on to spread throughout the country. They are an invasive species.

Nutrias are good swimmers with protruding rodent teeth and long, thick rat-like tails. They feed on aquatic and riverside plants and live in burrows that they dig above the water line in the river banks.
