Otters, for example, appreciate seasonal flooding regardless of the cause, moving into the wetlands in pursuit of fish. The hairy-nosed otter and common otter are particularly likely to be found in these areas. Some rodents, such as rufous-nosed rats, also value artificial wetlands.
Frogs that normally breed in natural seasonal pools will often also breed on this seasonally flooded land, as will certain species of waterfowl. In fact, artificially managed wetlands attract many of the species that normally visit natural seasonal marshes and can be good breeding grounds for ducks, grebes and waders if managed properly.
