I have to say, I was a little nervous getting out of my vehicle for this one. I grew knowing that under no circumstance should one try to approach one of these animals. My husband reassured me that beavers cannot move very quickly and so I would be fine.
There was no sign of an imminent attack, and so I took my time observing and taking snapshots. He kept his eye on me the entire time and I didn't push my luck. More interesting than the photos were the sounds of his munching. He was very loud! I found it all very adorable, but I was happy to get back to my vehicle again, without incident.
Without further delay, say hello to Beatrice, a fine specimen of Canada's national animal...
I'm sharing my photo on Eileen's critter loving blog HERE today...Thank-you Eileen!
