Next we headed over to see what those naughty beavers had been up to. They have sadly gnawed on even more trees and there is 4 that they have almost gnawed right through. Mom wonders what instinct it is they have to gnaw and fell live trees rather then use all the branches that are already on the ground. As you can see MY lake is very low - Mom thinks it has dropped between 8-12 feet - personally we think all those darn ducks and beavers are drinking it all!
Here is there lodge from both sides and you can see in the background of the second photo the trees they have been gnawing on. Now some of you noticed that the gnawing seemed high up on the tree - that is because those crafty little buggers stand upright to gnaw - they use their tail and back feet to balance them and hold onto the tree with their front paws plus they use the sharp claws they have on their front paws to rip away the bark.
