Did you know that during the Ice Age a bear-sized ancestor of the #beaver roamed Canada?

Today is International Beaver Day!
Four things you should know about North America’s beloved mega-rodent:
1. They don’t actually eat wood - they eat the inner green bark and aquatic plants
2. Their dams create habitat for amphibians, fish and other wildlife
3. Their tails feel like leather
4. Nearly wiped out by the fur trade, they’ve made a successful comeback

Breaking my hiatus to post for #internationalbeaverday ! Here I am trimming the replacement ear fuzz on an adorable taxidermy beaver - thanks to @amnh for a great treatment! #artconservation #naturalhistory #beaver

Not only is it #ThrowbackThursday, it’s also #InternationalBeaverDay! This photo of a beaver was taken in 1969, the same year the State Legislature named the American Beaver Oregon’s state animal.
Known as nature’s engineer, beavers are the largest living rodent in North America. Find them along rivers and small streams, lakes, marshes and even roadside ditches that have enough water flow. They build and maintain their dams and lodges with whatever materials they can find (wood, stones, mud, plants) and have been known to build truly impressive structures (one dam was 10 feet high and 165 feet wide). Difficult to spot in the wild, you might see their cuttings and stripped bark along waterways; the lighter the wood the more recent the cutting.
Of course you can also find the beaver on Oregon’s state flag, the only state flag with a design on both sides.

Sure, we’d love to celebrate #NationalBeerDay like every other beer brand...but it would be so rude of us to overlook #InternationalBeaverDay on the exact same day.

Just gonna leave this right here... #internationalbeaverday

Happy #InternationalBeaverDay!
When you think of a #Canadian animal, does a beaver come to mind?
Well, despite their iconic Canadian reputation, there are actually two types of beavers in the wild: the North American Beaver and the European Beaver.

HAPPY 😊 #InternationalBeaverDay ! .... Please rub responsibly

I was a little disappointed that I didn't actually see any beavers on my sunrise hike (since it's international Beaver Day) so I went for another hike to try again and found this gorgeous beaver. It even did a little show for me! ❤🐻❤ #beavers #ilovebeavers #beaversareawesome #internationalbeaverday #hike #hiking #explore #LCRV #connecticut #iloveconnecticut #ColinsHikes2017

So yesterday was #internationalbeaverday and I thought I'd share some facts about these magical little furballs. 🌱
••
Even though beavers swim in mud all day, they're closet neatfreaks. They build their lodges with 2 rooms: a living room where the fam hangs out and a mudroom where they shake off after entering through their secret underwater doors which keep the living room clean and dry.
••
They're only 2nd to humans in their ability to manipulate their environment.

The largest beaver dam is visible from space.
