Meanwhile, over 130 Beaver in the region could be detected. The beaver is a skilled landscape architect. A water depth of 50-80 cm is important for the beavers. The water is too shallow, he rounded up 70 cm high dams of branches and branches up to 1 m, which he seals off with mud and plant parts. Thus, he regulates the water level. The Beaver from branches and twigs to build his castles. The input must be always under water, to dive quickly to danger.
