Beavers are the second largest rodent in the world. They are primarilly nocturnal but can sometimes be seen during the day cruising around in their self-made ponds or nearby lakes. Beavers are best known for constructing dams that provide deep water for building a lodge and floating food to a central storage zone. They have thick fur and a large, flat tail that aids in swimming and is also used to slap the surface of a pond as a warning signal if danger approaches.
