The Beaver, is a primarily nocturnal, semi aquatic rodent with two main species, the North American Beaver and the European Beaver. They are best known for their natural trait of building dams on rivers and streams. Their population has been dwindling worldwide, and in Europe, they have been hunted almost to extinction. However, in recent years the Beaver has began to be re-introduced throughout Europe, including Scotland and a select number of areas within the english countryside.
To protect the Beaver, and their still fragile community, new breeds have been established which are harder to spot. If you see one, you have been extremely lucky indeed.
