Description
North American Beaver moving through shallow wilderness pond. Castor canadensis is a primarily nocturnal, large, semi-aquatic rodent. Beavers are known for building dams, canals, and lodges. 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 beaver population was once more than 60 million, but population decline resulted from extensive hunting for fur, for glands used as medicine and perfume, and because their harvesting of trees and flooding of waterways may have interfered with other land uses. Jackson Hole, Wyoming, 2009.
