Beavers are semiaquatic rodents who are well-known for their amazing home building. Beavers have flat shaped tail that helps in swimming and dam building. Beavers are slow on land but are good swimmers as they maintain good speed in water.

Beavers are sociable animals, living in streams, where, so as to render the water of sufficient depth, they build dams of mud and of the stems and boughs of trees felled by their powerful incisor teeth. In the neighbourhood they make their lodges which are roomy chambers, with the entrance beneath the water. The mud is plastered down by the fore-feet, and not, as often supposed, by the tail, which is employed solely as a rudder.

They are nocturnal animals and found in the forests areas of America and Europe. They are herbivorous animals who like to eat tree barks, lily, willow and others. They have transparent eyelids and one can find them in brown or grey color.
