Beavers (Castor Canadensis) are the largest rodent species in North America and weigh 18–27kg (40–60lbs). They are semi-aquatic animals that spend most of their time in rivers and streams.

Wild Beavers live for approximately 10 years and are social nocturnal (night dwelling) animals that live in family groups and mate for life. Females give birth in the spring and usually have three or four kits. Both parents, as well as year-old siblings, care for the newborns. At the age of two, offspring leave the family unit in search of their own breeding territory.

Beavers have several unique features that allow for easy navigation in water; webbed hind feet to assist in swimming; very dense fur that acts as insulation in cold water; their ear and nose openings are designed to close when submerged; they also have a broad flat tail functions in swimming, dam building and communication.

Beavers create dams to raise water levels so they can build their lodges (house), in the dam. This is done by creating an island with an underwater entrance; so they are sheltered from many predators. The entrance leads to dry chambers where beavers sleep, give birth and store food for future consumption. They may also construct burrows in riverbanks.

Beavers eat leaves, roots, cambium, clover, apples, corn, grasses, water lilies, other aquatic vegetation and the bark of trees such as aspen, willow and cottonwood.

Beavers teeth will grow throughout its lifetime; gnawing on trees keeps them from overgrowing.

Beavers have many natural predators, including bears, minks, lynx, bobcats, cougars, wolves, coyotes, raptors (which kill juveniles) and humans.

Humans are one of the biggest threats to beavers by trapping, water pollution and habitat loss through drainage of wetlands, are common occurrences that negatively affect beaver populations.
