Common American Beaver Skull BC-101E, Economy Grade
5 ½" L x 3 ½" W x 3 ½" H 13.5L x 9.1W x 9H (cm)
The largest rodent in North America, the semi-aquatic beaver can weigh up to 60 pounds. It is an excellent swimmer, using its webbed back feet and paddle-like tail to maneuver through the water. Its chisel-like incisors, which never stop growing, make quick work of downing most trees. These incisors, protruding in front of their lips, allow the beaver to work underwater with its mouth closed. Underwater, its nose and ears have valves shutting out the water, allowing the beaver to stay submerged for 15 minutes. 2-part skull (separate cranium & jaw).
