All About Beavers

Beavers are fascinating animals that live in and around bodies of water. They have a round, furry body, a flat tail, and big front teeth. You will find lots of fun beaver coloring pages here!

Beavers come in different colors, from light brown to dark brown. They are also very good swimmers and can hold their breath for a long time underwater.

Beavers are known for building dams in rivers and streams. They use sticks, mud, and other materials to create a wall that slows down the flow of water. This creates a pond where they can build their homes, called lodges.

Beavers are also very good at cutting down trees with their sharp front teeth, which they use to build their dams and lodges.

Beavers are herbivores, which means they eat plants. They mostly eat bark, twigs, and leaves from trees, but they also eat grasses and aquatic plants. Beavers are very important to their ecosystem because they create habitats for other animals, such as fish and birds. If you’re interested in learning more about beavers, you can print out our free coloring pages and create your own colorful beaver!
