The fragile wetlands of Louisiana are under relentless attack by legions of 20-pound semi-aquatic invasive rodents known as nutria, which have greatly accelerated coastal erosion and made the bayou much more vulnerable to hurricanes. Keeping the giant swamp rats at bay are a group of colorful and off-beat residents, who are in the midst of defending their land, culture, and way of life. Rodents of Unusual Size tells the story of how invasive species, environmental issues, and a unique group of people are colliding at the edge of the world in an attempt to restore and protect coastal Louisiana before it disappears.
