Travis and Travis and our friend Clyde were out catching a delicious walleye dinner just after season opener last week and they came across one of several beavers out on Parker Lake. They managed to get extremely close to the beaver and captured some incredible pictures. Apparently he wasn’t too concerned with the audience he had while munching on a tasty birch log. In the video you can hear the beaver eating, I kind of love it. I can’t decide if I think this beaver is cute or terrifying. What do you think? He/she is giant, for sure.
Did you know that beavers are Canada’s national symbol and they can weigh up to 30 kilograms (or over 70 pounds)? Beavers are North America’s largest rodent. Their teeth never stop growing, which is why they are always gnawing on logs. They can be pretty dangerous in the water when threatened, which is why we keep Cosmo out of the water when we see one swimming by the docks.
Hope you get to see a beaver in action when you are at Eagle Falls Lodge this summer!
