Beaver Identification

Beavers are primarily large, nocturnal semiaquatic rodents. They are the second largest rodent world wide only second to the capybara. The North American Beaver are the types of beavers found in the U.S. and Orlando Florida. They adult can weigh anywhere from 25-70lbs with an average weight of 45lbs but older beavers have been found to weigh much more. Beavers have a double coat of dark brown fur and scent glands located near their genitals that secrete an oily substance known as castoreum to waterproof its fur. These semiaquatic rodents have a large flat pabble-shaped tail, webbed hind feet and unwebbed front paws with claws.

Beaver Habitat

Beavers are primarily active at night, they are nocturnal. They work during the night to gather sticks, twigs, mud, rock to build their lodge along with buidling dams. They prefer to build their lodge in an area surrounded by water or touching land such as burrows into river banks. They will build dams in order to deepen the water around their lodge in order to escape predators. A dam may not be needed if the water surrounding their den is already deep. Problems arise when beavers build dams they create flooding for homeowners and commercial property owners.

There has been occurrences where beavers have bitten humans in defense of their territory.
