Beavers are the engineers of the animal world; if their home isn’t quite up to scratch they have no problem doing some home improvements! These incredible animals are perfectly adapted for life on both land and in the water – they have an impressive flat tail and webbed feet.
Average lifespan: 10-15 years
Beavers are being re-introduced into different parts of Great Britain after an absence of about 400 years.
