North American Beavers
Beavers are covered in two layers of brown fur, an insulating under-layer and a waterproof outer coat. They also have a distinctive flattened tail, webbed feet and large incisor teeth.
North American beavers are found around rivers and lakes from Alaska down to Florida and Mexico.
Beavers mate for life and live in pairs, with their offspring usually staying for two years. Beavers usually have two or three kits at a time; these are born in late spring within the safety of the lodge.
