Big, big, big rodent dams and such

Beavers are the largest rodent in North America and can weigh in excess of 80 lbs.  They are herbivores that feed on the outer bark of trees like cottonwood, willow and many other species.  Their diet also includes leaves and vegetation.  The video sadly does not contain the rodent in question as video of the species had eluded me.  But the viewer will see some beautiful dams constructed by beavers, beaver lodges, slides, and feeding sign.  Useful viewing for anyone who wants to learn a little more about our giant rodent.
