Mammals - Beaver
Class:Mammalia Order:Rodentia Family:Castoridae Genus:Castor


Beaver are sometimes considered a problem in some Kansas and Missouri parks because they damage trees and can make it difficult to manage wetlands. So much so that they are sometimes "removed" or "harvested". When your species runs the planet you can make those kinds of decisions while just outside of many parks humans are mowing down trees and brush to build houses and condos.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
