About the Beaver
Beavers are well known for damming up streams to create large ponds. Felling trees with their strong teeth and powerful jaws, they create massive logs, twigs, sticks, leaves, and mud and are surprisingly strong. Beaver lodges are also constructed of branches and mud. They are often strategically located in the middle of ponds and can only be reached by underwater entrances. A beaver colony can consist of six or more, including parents, yearlings, and kits.
Beavers are nocturnal and slow on land, but good swimmers that can stay under water for as long as 15 minutes at a time. In the winter the beaver does not hibernate but instead stores sticks and logs underwater that the beaver can then feed on through the cold winter. Beavers remain active all winter, swimming and foraging in their ponds even when a layer of ice covers the surface.
Beavers are among the largest of rodents; adults may weigh over 40 pounds. Their soft fur is naturally oily and waterproof.
