I got a new pet

I got a new 'pet', as I said in the title, BUT he isn't a pet-able pet. He hates hands and all kinds of people.

He loves to swim a lot and rarely comes up to breathe. He doesn't blend in much... He eats with terrible manners, shoving his food into his mouth using his front feet. He has no teeth, no tongue and no eyelids! He is forever staring He's very white, as he is a morph (well albino) and I keep calling it a he but I think it could be a she. He could potentially eat the other things in his enclosure but he's okay on his pellets and freeze dried foods so he leaves them alone. He's currently about an inch and a half in length but he can be around 5 inches fully grown. He has unusual feet.

Either way, with those few hints... can you guess what Brian is?

They are illegal to own in some states because they breed like rabbits in the wild. crazy huh?
