American beavers are herbivores that eat branches and lettuce.
The only enrichment item for the beaver is the pile of branches. They will use these branches to construct a shelter.
There are no available shelters for the American beaver. They build their own shelters from a pile of branches.
American beavers are monogamous; they have a single mate for life. They have litters of 1-2 kits.
- American beavers are sometimes dropped by parachute into remote areas to build dams and reduce erosion in rivers in real life.
