Did you Know?

Beavers have a reputation for being deedy, and they certainly are busy. Are beavers busier than other animals? Probably not — most animals are as deedy as beavers. But unlike beavers, other animals don’t usually leave such physical evidence of their activities. The habit of building dams and lodges with trees they cut down makes beavers easier to notice than, say, hummingbirds or chipmunks, both of which are likewise deedy animals.
