Beaver Prints

Young beaver name: kit, kitten, pup

A group of beavers is called: family, colony

Beaver classification: castorine

Beaver class: Mammal

Beavers are two primarily nocturnal, semi-aquatic species of rodent, one native to North America and one to Europe. They are known for building dams, canals, and lodges (homes). They are the second-largest rodent in the world (after the capybara). Their colonies create one or more dams to provide still, deep water to protect against predators, and to float food and building material. The North American population was 60-400 million, but as of 1988, 6-12 million, due to being hunted for fur, for their glands used as medicine and perfume, and because their harvesting of trees and flooding of waterways may interfere with other land uses.

Beavers are known for their natural trait of building dams in rivers and streams, and building their homes (known as beaver lodges) in the resulting pond. Beavers also build canals to float build materials that are difficult to haul over land. They use powerful front teeth to cut trees and plants that they use for building and for food.

They are known for their danger signal: when startled or frightened, a swimming beaver will rapidly dive while forcefully slapping the water with its broad tail. This creates a loud slap

audible over large distances above and below water. This noise serves as a warning to beavers in the area. Once a beaver has made this danger signal

nearby beavers dive and may not reemerge for some time. Beavers are slow on land

but good swimmers that can stay under water for as long as 15 minutes. (Wilson

1971) Rarely does a frightened beaver attack a human.

Fossil remains of beavers are found in the peat and other superficial deposits of England and the continent of Europe; while in the Pleistocene formations of England and Siberia occur remains of a giant extinct beaver, Trogontherium cuvieri, representing a genus by itself.
