Mammal Monday – “That’s One Fat Squirrel!”

My daughter and I were tagging monarch butterflies last Fall when she spotted what she thought was a squirrel. As we moved in for a closer look, we realized we were actually looking at a very different animal. As I reached for my phone to snap a quick picture, we heard a loud “plop” and realized that a beaver had just slipped back into the creek. Oh well, the picture above is a much better one that I would have been able to obtain with my phone.
