My name is Castor, and I am a Beaver (Castor canadensis)!

The American Beaver is the largest rodent in North America, and can weigh up to 60lbs (the size of a medium-sized dog like a small lab or golden retriever).Did you know I live in houses I make myself by cutting down trees with my front teeth?
