Beaver is North Americaâ€™s largest rodent. Adults weight from 35 to 50 pounds , with some occasionally reaching 70 to 85 pounds.
The beaver is a stocky rodent adapted for aquatic environments. Many of the beaverâ€™s features enable it to remain submerged for long periods of time. It has a valvular nose and ears, and lips that close behind the four large incisor teeth.Each of the four feet have five digits, with the hind feet webbed between digits and a split second claw on each hind foot. The front feet are small in comparison to the hind feet.
The prominent tail is flattened dorsoventrally, scaled, and almost hairless. It is used as a prop while the beaver is sitting upright. water.The beaverâ€™s large front (incisor) teeth, bright orange on the front, grow continuously throughout its life.
The only way to externally distinguish the sex of a beaver, unless the female is lactating, is to feel for the presence of a baculum (a bone in the penis) in males and its absence in females.
what do beavers eat : Beavers prefer certain trees and woody species, such as aspen, cottonwood, willow, sweetgum, blackgum, black cherry, tulip poplar, and pine,depending on availability. However, they can and will eat the leaves, twigs, and bark of most species of woody plants that grow near the water, as well as a wide variety of herbaceous and aquatic plants.
Life Cycle: Beavers are generally monogamous; copulation may take place either in the water or in the lodge or bank den.After a gestation period of about 128 days, the female beaver generally gives birth to 3 or 4 kittens between March and June, and nurses them for 6 weeks to 3 months. The kittens are born fully furred with their eyes partially opened. They become sexually mature by the age of 1 1/2 years.
These scent posts are found more frequently at certain seasons, but are found yearround in active ponds.They lived to 21 years.
Damage: habitat modification by beavers, caused primarily by dam building, is often beneficial to fish, furbearers, reptiles, amphibians, waterfowl, and shorebirds. damage caused by beavers is a result of dam building, bank burrowing, tree cutting, or flooding.
Trapping : The use of traps in most situations where beavers are causing damage is the most effective, practical, and environmentally safe method of control. The effectiveness of any type of trap for beaver control is dependent on the trapperâ€™s knowledge of beaver habits, food preferences, ability to read beaver signs, use of the proper trap, and trap placement.
A variety of trapping methods and types of traps are effective for beavers, depending on the situation. Fish and wildlife agency regulations vary from state to state. Some types of traps and trapping methods, although effective and legal in some states, may be prohibited by law in other states. Individual state regulations must be reviewed annually before beginning a trapping program.
