** We had seen signs of what we surmised as Beaver activity a few weeks ago…never
have located a “dam” But Friday morning I saw the critter gnawing on a recently
gnawed limb from a Box Elder Tree on our Creek Bank.
Both wood ducks and beavers have made remarkable comebacks across the South. Are these phenomena related? (November 2007)
Beavers must eat a lot of food to get the nutrition they need. A beaver may eat up to 20% of its own weight in just one day.
Beavers are semi-aquatic rodents native to North America and Europe. They are the only living members of the family Castoridae, which contains a single genus, Castor. Genetic research has shown the European and North American beaver populations to be distinct species and that hybridization is unlikely.Beavers are best known for their natural trait of building dams in rivers and streams, and building their homes (known as beaver lodges) in the resulting pond. They are the second-largest rodent in the world (after the capybara).
