Canadian Beavers

The beaver is a nocturnal rodent which lives in water. They are the second-largest rodent in the world. Beavers have flat tails that they use to keep their balance while gnawing on wood. Their back legs have webbed-feet which allow them to swim easily and quick.

They create dams to protect themselves against predators and to float their food in the water. Beavers can have a set of dams but they will focus on one more than the other. They build their dams by carrying mud and stones with their paws and other wood materials between their teeth.
