Beavers

I am about as tall as a beaver dam.

a Beavers babys are called kits

Beavers liv in lodjis

lodjis are beaver homs.

Dictated to Mama:
A beaver can hold his breath for 15 minutes. One time my mom was fly fishing in a river. A beaver across the river slapped his tail. Beavers slap their tails when in danger. It was really loud. It sounded like this "SSLLAAPP." After it slapped the water it went diving under the water.
Beaver lodges can sometimes look like islands in the water made out of sticks. The islands go to the bottom of the lake. The beavers build tunnels to get in and out of the lodge. That's how they swim under the ice in the winter.

  • I never knew that about calling them kits. Aren't fox babies called kits, too? Hmmm.

    I've read that beaver dams are HUGE under the water, and we could hang out in one and watch their TV for a while.

    Okay. I made that up.

  • Hi Aidan -- I like beavers, too. We have one in the pond at our farm in Virginia.

  • Wow! That's quite a set of teeth they have. I don't think I've personally seen a live beaver before, although I'm sure I've seen a dam and a lodge before. Very cool pics, Aidan.

  • Beavers seem like a very smart animal. They also seem to be friendly, but boy, they sure do chew things up!
