There once was a beaver who was so busy that he didn't always think things through. After finding himself on the wrong side of a falling tree one day, the beaver begins to see the error of his careless ways. He's eager to set things right, but will his friends and neighbors believe he's truly changed behavior?
Female Beavers are smaller and lighter in color than the dark males. The female stays in the nest with the pups, where there's an underwater entrance, but a high platform that is out of the water and warm. Both sexes have the "paddle tail."
Most Beaver dams are long, like this one and most of it is underwater. It is made of tree branches, mud, leaves, grasses, that are strategicaly placed. Both male and female are active in raising the pups. The dams aide in balancing water supplies down stream. When humans start interfering with this balance, do floods, drought and other imbalances happen.
