this evening, we walked down to the bridge (okay…this photo was taken YESTERDAY) to check on the water level in the Bayou…it’s only up about 2′ from before the rains started. Anyhow, while we were hanging over the railing, I could hear this weird noise. I walked a little further looking for the source cause it sounded like something rubbing on wood or a hog snuffling. Ernie hollered at me to come to where he was…and there in the water was a beaver! This is about the 3rd time we’ve actually seen one down here. We see the evidence often where they’re chewing trees. Wish I had taken the camera today.
He/she explored all inside the little house, then stood in the food bowl…
Sorry the photos are so blurry, but I wasn’t going to get out there with him/her.
Look at this magnificient tail! Like a huge feather.
Shame they’re so stinky, cause this one is a very small one and really pretty. I’d love to make a pet of one.
