About Eurasian Beaver (Castor fiber)
Eurasian beavers have two layers of fur, the first is a soft dense undercoat that is dark grayish in color. The outer layer is longer, stiff reddish brown hairs called guard hairs. Fur color tends to be darker in northern populations. The muzzle is blunt, ears are small, and the legs are short.
Eurasian beavers are herbivores, feeding primarily on woody vegetation in the winter months. Eurasian beavers prefer willow, aspen, and birch trees with diameters less than 10 cm.
Eurasian beavers are semi-aquatic and inhabit freshwater systems, including lakes, ponds, rivers, and streams, usually in forested areas but also in marshes and swamps.
