MAMA BEAVER IS SOOOO READY TO HAVE HER BABIESBy Mother’s Day, this Mama Beaver will have had BABY BEAVERS! Beavers are monogamous and stay together for life. A female beaver gives birth once a year, typically one to four kits at a time. These kits, along with those born the previous year, stay with their parents in the family lodge for about two years before moving out (usually downstream) to find their own mate and build a lodge.BEAVERCAM, Atascadero • ©Dr. Emily Fairfax TWO BEAVER KITS PLAYINGTwo little kits are playing together in freezing weather! The one on the right is rubbing her coat to spread body oils throughout her thick, layered fur to keep it fluffy and waterproof.BEAVERCAM, Atascadero • ©Dr. Emily Fairfax BEAVERCAM, Atascadero • ©Dr. Emily Fairfax BEAVERCAM, Atascadero, Dr. Emily Fairfax and SLO Beaver Brigade BEAVERCAM, Atascadero: Beaver and Black-crowned Night Heron • ©Dr. Emily Fairfax Beaver ponds support hundreds of other species, which is why they’re considered a KEYSTONE SPECIES and why we need more beavers!
