Beaver Family is: Home

We dogsledded by this beaver lodge today. For curosity's sake, we stopped to see if it is occupied.

If beavers are wintering over inside a lodge, then the warmth from their bodies melts a small chimney in the snow at the very top.

Sure enough, beavers are present in this lodge. The photo shows Cassidy (age 11, Kansas) looking at the chimney vent.
