Beaver

Not for idle hands, this beaver puppet is ready to get down to business. His resume includes sleek brown fur (for swimming), a workable mouth (complete with gnawing incisors), a flat textured tail (for thumping) and a full set of realistic paws. But this fellow does not pause – a beaver’s work is never done!

FACTS OF INTEREST:

There are two species of beaver, the European and the North American.

They are the second-largest rodent in the world (after the capybara). Their colonies create one or more dams to provide still, deep water to protect against predators, and to float food and building material.

Although just two closely related species exist today, beavers have a long fossil history in the Northern Hemisphere beginning in the Eocene, and many species of giant beaver existed until quite recently, such as Trogontherium in Europe, and Castoroides in North America.

Beavers have webbed hind-feet, and a broad, scaly tail. They have poor eyesight, but keen senses of hearing, smell, and touch. A beaver’s teeth grow continuously so that they will not be worn down by chewing on wood. Their four incisors are composed of hard orange enamel on the front and a softer dentin on the back. The chisel-like ends of incisors are maintained by their self-sharpening wear pattern. The enamel in a beaver’s incisors contains iron and is more resistant to acid than enamel in the teeth of other mammals.
