Beaver (Castor canadensis)
The beaver is the largest rodent in North America. Like all rodents, they have sharp incisors and bite cleanly through plant stems and twigs. Beaver are nocturnal and cause damage at night in fields relatively close to open water. Many people are familiar with the lodges beaver construct within ponds, but beaver also excavate bank dens along rivers and streams.
