As the name suggests, the North American beaver (Castor canadensis) is native to the USA and Canada, but it has also been introduced to South America. It’s one of the largest rodents in the world, getting as heavy as 110 lbs (50 kg) in maturity.
Beavers are well known for building dams out of twigs, shrubs and leaves, which are also essential components of their diet. The largest beaver dam, located in the Wood Buffalo National Park in Alberta, is twice as wide as the Hoover Dam. Their average lifespan in the wild is roughly 20 years.
