About the 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.

Habitat and Distribution

North American beavers are found around rivers and lakes from Alaska down to Florida and Mexico.

Family Information

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.
