Beavers are amazing engineers! Their adaptations help them complete their jobs most effectively. On land, a beaver’s movements are extremely awkward, making them vulnerable to predators. In water, however, beavers can swim up to 6 mph and they stay underwater for up to 15 minutes, all which help beavers evade terrestrial predators. A naturalist will bring props to showcase this fascinating animal.
