Beavers are the largest rodents in North America and one of the few species that significantly modify their environment. By building watertight dams, which reduce stream erosion and form slow-moving ponds, they provide aquatic habitat for dozens of other species.


There are two main varieties of beaver, the North American beaver (Castor canadensis), native to North America and Eurasian beaver (Castor fiber) found in Eurasia. Beavers are known for building dams, canals, and lodges (homes). 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. The North American beaver population was once more than 60 million, but as of 1988 was 6–12 million. A similar trend occurred in Europe, with only around 1200 individuals remaining at the turn of the 20th Century. This population decline is the result of extensive hunting for fur, for glands used as medicine and perfume, and because the beavers' harvesting of trees and flooding of waterways may interfere with other land uses. All the beavers belong to genus Castor.

Those are very healthy and adorable looking beavers, Roy!  I can imagine there are many delightful sights at the National Zoo.
