The North American beavers are nature’s hard-working architects. They have an innate ability to build structures that can rival even some ambitious human projects. These impressive skilled creatures also ended up becoming the main characters of a video game (it’s called Timberborn, if you want to look for it).

But this is not enough to explain what makes beavers so darn charming! With their big eyes and adorable teething, beavers are one of the cutest animals you could find out there. Known for building dams and lodges in rivers and lakes, they’re one of the six symbols of Canada. The trade of beaver fur used to be so profitable to the country that Canadians felt compelled to pay tribute to this buck-toothed animal. Canadians are not the only ones so obsessed with cute beavers. We are too, and that’s why we put together a collection of beaver pics that will build up your love for them, picture after picture!

It’s Not Very Common We See Baby Beavers! Mostly Because They’re Kept Safe In The Lodge, It’s Hard To Find Them When They Could Be In Trouble

It’s Not Very Common We See Baby Beavers! Mostly Because They’re Kept Safe In The Lodge, It’s Hard To Find Them When They Could Be In Trouble

Luckily this little one had a saviour on a paddle board! When it was pulled from behind the rocks it had already been crying for three days, and had likely ventured out of the lodge after a few days of no parents returning. After almost a week alone, this baby was lucky to get into our centre. Beaver kits are born precocial with a fluffy coat and their eyes open. With both parents tending to the babies, they are never left alone and need constant attention in the unfortunate event they are alone without a family. This little one required extensive stabilization with rehydration every few hours, even through the night by our dedicated volunteers. Because we partner with other amazing wildlife centres across the province, we were able to get this little beaver into the best possible place it could grow up, (next to with its mom and dad of course). Aspen Valley Wildlife Sanctuary has the largest beaver rehabilitation facilities in Canada, and another orphaned baby that needed a friend.
After two years in care they will be old enough to be released into vacant ponds to claim, and hopefully start little beaver families of their own. Beavers are essential to our aquatic ecosystems—they are wildlife engineers and the ponds they make create habitat for hundreds of other species. We thank Tracy and all our finders for caring for Ontarios wildlife, helping us keep Kawartha wild!

Did you know baby beavers stay with their families for two or more years? If you ever see multiple beavers in a pond they are probably all related!

Orphaned Baby Beaver Can’t Even Control His Own Tail And It’s Just Too Cute

Orphaned Baby Beaver Can’t Even Control His Own Tail And It’s Just Too Cute

This wee baby beaver was found all alone on a golf course near Calgary, Canada by the rescuers at the Alberta Institute for Wildlife Conservation. The orphaned beaver was far away from water and had his tail injured, which suggests that he might have been dropped by a predator.

This Young Beaver Was Brought To Our Hospital Last Week After It Was Found Alone In Byron

This Young Beaver Was Brought To Our Hospital Last Week After It Was Found Alone In Byron

Our hospital team examined the beaver and found it to be healthy. That evening, a volunteer returned to the area and located a beaver lodge. The next day, the volunteer was able to successfully reunite the beaver kit with its family. One of the most important things you can do if you find a baby animal is to make sure it is truly abandoned or orphaned by waiting and observing to see if a parent returns.

Just wanted to add this comment on the last photo. Yes beavers are adorable— they are also territorial and aggressive. Please do not disturb a beaver dam looking for cute photos. I live in Montana and see dams/lodges often and always make sure my dogs don’t swim out to them. One of my dogs once learned the hard way and was attacked by a ginormous male beaver. The beaver tried to drown my dog and latched on to his face with its teeth. Dog finally made it back to the bank, but required many, many stitches on several lacerations on his face and neck. RESPECT THE WILD.
