Beaver by the Dam

The beaver is a semi aquatic rodent. Beavers live in North America, parts of Europe and Asia. Surprisingly, there are beavers in the southern part of South America.

Beavers live near forests. They need water to live so they make their homes in lakes, ponds, reservoirs, rivers and streams. Beavers eat tree bark, new green plants, clover, berries, water plants and sometimes algae.

In colder areas beavers store food for the winter. You will find large stacks of wood near their lodge. Aspen trees are one of their favorites.

These animals are an important part of the American and Canadian western ecosystem. Their dams provide ponds for water storage that are essential for plants, insects and  animals.
