Transcript of Mountain Beavers
By: Heather Biddix
Thank you for listening!
Mountain beavers are found along the western coast in western Washington, western Oregon and Eastern California.
What do they eat?
Mountain beavers are herbivorous and eat a variety of plants along with many different types of trees including vine maples, willows, alders, and conifers.
Mountain Beavers only have one breeding cycle per year. And because of this, they only have one litter of 2 to four babies per year(around March-April).
You can find mountain beavers in moist forest areas and sometimes can be found in damp ravines in urban areas.
These animals can climb trees to chew off limbs of trees up to 1 inch in diameter.
The long, sharp front teeth they have help them chisel into wood.
Females are not old enough to reproduce till they are around 2 years old.
The mountain beaver can live up to 5 to 6 years old.
No, mountain beavers have a pretty stable population trend.
An estimated population of the mountain beavers is 10,000>1,000,000.
But my estimation is around 500,000 mountain beavers.
