I see you eyeing my morning wood!
The Eurasian Beaver is the largest European rodent and has a lot of the same habits and appearances of the American Beaver. But they are in fact different. The two species aren’t even genetically compatible. North American beavers have 40 chromosomes while Eurasian beavers have 48. Eurasian Beavers also tend to have less rounded heads, longer, narrower muzzles, shorter, less oval-shaped tails, and their anal glands are larger and thin-walled with a large internal volume … incase you’re into that kind of stuff.
They are now only found in parts of Scandinavia, Poland, France, Southern Germany, Austria and Russia.
They feed on bark and twigs in the winter and on all kinds of vegetation in summer.
Like its celebrity look-a-like, the Eurasian Beaver is a monogamous mammal. However, there have been some cases where males sleep around and mate with females other than their partners.
Jon, don't make that mistake.
No, no one has ever told me I have beaver teeth.
See the resemblance?
