The largest North American rodent, can weigh between 35 to 50 lbs, with some reaching 70 to 85 lbs, a stocky rodent with webbed hind feet. Dark colored fur usually brown with large incisor teeth that can be yellow or orange. Has a large dorsoventrally flat tail that is scalled and almost hairless. Habitat is anywhere there is a year round body of water, streams, lakes, farm ponds, swamps, wetland areas, roadside ditches, drainage ditches, canals, mine pits, drains from sewage disposal ponds, etc,. Beavers can cause problems by their dam building and feeding behavior. Beavers are normally nocturnal and prefer to eat aspen, cottonwood, willow, sweetgum, blackgum, black cherry, tulip poplar, and pine, but will eat almost any woody plants that grow near the water. They can and will travel 100 yards out of the water for food, to nearby fields or other disconnected bodies of water. A colony normally consists of 4 to 8 related individuals, but some beavers live alone as hermits. Other signs besides a dam is a beaver lodge constructed of mud and sticks either away from the shore or close to it. They also will construct territorial "castor mounds" that signifies to newcomer beavers this territory is already occupied by beaver. Besides causing flooding and bank destabilization with their dam construction behavior and chewing down trees, another problem associated with this animal is the contamination of water with "Giardia" germs. An associated pest, the NUTRIA RAT is sometimes confused with the beaver, due to its swimming and coloration, but it has a long "rat like" tail and does not build dams or lodges. The Nutria Rat will dig denholes in banks and will chew down small shrubs and grasses near the shoreline.
