Blog Challenge 'B'
B Beavers Today I am writing about beavers because they are a good example of diligence and perseverance. To see a beaver building a dam, symbolizes ambition and that hard work is necessary to achieve your own goals. Beavers are fat furry animals that are generally found in North America and Canada. They are known for their "danger signal": when startled , a swimming beaver will rapidly dive while forcefully slapping the water with its broad tail. This creates a loud "slap," audible over great distances above and below water. This noise serves as a warning to beavers in the area. Once a beaver has made this danger signal, nearby beavers dive and may not reemerge for some time. Beavers are slow on land, but good swimmers that can stay under water for as long as 15 minutes. Frightened beavers rarley attack a human. Beaver meat is generally served in restaurants in the Northern US.
