I am looking for nutria I would prefer to find them live but would also possibly buy them frozen provided they didnt sit in a trap dead I could take quite a few if things work out . I am in baltimore md area and could travel several hours to pick up . this could be helpful to a trapper in the right area . and if the demand is where i think its going to be it could also help the nuisance problem with nutria Thanks

Graf-What on earth would you want with LIVE NUTRIA? Do you happen to know the state laws on transporting live animals? This could be interesting...let us know.

That's a bit of a strange request for a first post on a forum. I guess I should say welcome and would you care to explain in some detail what you would drive several hours for nutria for. Posts like tis kinda scare me.

I second that motion. What do you want live nutria for? I have a hunch but I would like to hear it from you. :)

about the nutria... wouldn't you be spending more money if you had to drive a long distance to get the nutria than you would if you just went somewhere and bought some rats. if you really want to stop paying so much for rats and you want to save money why don't you just find a local trapper that traps muskrats. i'm sure they would be more than happy to give you the carcasses, or you could take up muskrat trappin.

sounds good but muskrats dont get 10 to 20 lbs if i had a few females and a male i could have plenty Im pretty sure they are in my area (i think blackwater)i hope there is a trapper here or close that could help it seems nutria breed and grow much faster than rabbits

Here's some help for you !! To have a live nutria is illegal in this state !! They've spent thousands of dollars to eradicate them and you want to import more !!! Not a very good idea if you ask me, and the fine !! Who knows how much that would be. Good luck on your snake food if you want opposums during the season I get plenty and I'm only a county away ! TS
