What Are Beavers
The beaver, often recognized as a national symbol of Canada, are among the largest living rodents in the world. They have powerful jaws and strong teeth which enable them to chew through trees, most commonly to build dams in which they live. They grow up to 4 feet in length, and can be identified by their flat paddle-like tail, thick fur, and buck teeth.
