  • Beaver Fur 
  • Beaver's Teeth
  • Beaver's Tail
  • A beaver's fur has an undercoat and an outer coat. A beaver waterproofs it's fur by coating it with oil. In late spring or summer, the beaver slowly molts or loses these hairs. It begins growing a new coat for the next winter.
  • Habitat 
  • A beaver has two large front teeth called incisors. When a beaver gnaws, the lower pair of incisors works against the upper pair. A beaver's incisors never stop growing. 
  •                     Food
  • A beaver's wide, flat tail is unique and powerful which helps it when carrying a branch in the water. A large adult beaver may have a 12 to 18-inch tail and less than an inch thick. It has scales like a fish or a reptile.
  • Predators
  • A beaver's home is the water and dams. Dams are made of sticks, stones and anything else a beaver would find. Most dams take advantage of any natural anchor already in the water. 
  • Beaver's are strict vegetarians and their main food is the soft bark of trees. A beaver will often sit up on its hind legs and feed on a branch or a log and also eat small branches and cambium of larger branches. Some of the beaver's favorite foods are grasses, polar, mushrooms, berries, potatoes, cattail, and carrots. 
  • While in the water a beaver's predators are otters and large fish might sometimes prey on the smallest kits. On land, it's more dangerous for a beaver. Wolves, coyotes, bears, wolverines, cougars, and bobcats all prey on it. A smaller kits may also be attacked by foxes, hawks, and owls.
