Not sure what this second one is, maybe an Agouti, about the size of a house cat - maybe a little bigger - it's another rodent....

Thanks Denis, I assume they escaped from fur farms, much like the North American Mink.

And according to the church it's a fish (so that they could be eaten during Lent).

Looks like it. One of the very few critters that can bite through the shell of a Brazil nut, so don't let it chew your fingers!

Initially three , yep... just three escaped and that led to 200000 of them , they kept the rivers clean but ate vegetable crops too and that was their downfall.

They have some of these at the animal park at Shepreth, near us.  Massive things!
They look like they should be smaller than they are.
