Beavers are known for their love of trees, but did you know that these furry creatures also enjoy eating fish? While beavers typically eat the bark of trees, they will also munch on the occasional fish. In fact, fish make up a significant portion of a beaver’s diet.

If you’ve ever seen a beaver dam, you know that these animals are capable of building some pretty impressive structures. Beavers use their powerful tails to slap the water, which alerts other beavers to the presence of fish. The beavers then work together to corral the fish into a small area where they can be easily caught.

Once the beavers have caught their fish dinner, they bring it back to their lodge to feast. While beavers are mostly herbivores, they will eat meat when it’s available. In addition to fish, beavers will also eat small mammals, birds, and even reptiles.

So, the next time you see a beaver dam, remember that these clever creatures are using it to catch their dinner!
