A Zephyr is defined as a “Gentle Breeze.” Just what then, would the New Orleans Zephyrs do for a mascot?

A giant rat-like creature, what else? No, it wouldn't be the Rodents of Unusual Size. That would actually be cool. No, the Zephyrs mascot is a nutria, a large, semi-aquatic rodent initially native to South America.

Sounds appealing, doesn't it?

A special note must be made of the New Orleans logo, which features a very angry looking nutria. Really closer to a psychotic otter than anything else. While Angry Nutria has buckteeth like a beaver, the actual mascot (Boudreaux and his wife Clotile) has more tusk-like appendages.

Yes, of course the mascot is married. Wouldn't want the four mascot children to be born out of wedlock would we? Methinks that New Orleans takes this just a touch to seriously.

Check out Boudreaux and Clotile. And don't forget the wedding photos.
