Winter Life for the North American Beaver

The above video is a series of short clips taken this winter of an animal extremely well adapted to cold New England Winters. Despite average night-time temperatures of -15 F°, this beaver left it's lodge to forage and was never bothered by the cold. Peak activity was from 1-3am and not one clip was recorded during daylight hours. This is a two minute condensed version from 4+ hours of footage during a one week filming period.
