They are well-known as impressive and talented engineers and builders, also these famously busy rodents are absolutely amazing from strong teeth to leathery tails. Some odd facts about the anatomy of these creatures: they have vanilla-scented butts, because of their special diet, their teeth never stop to grow, that’s why they should work hard and wear them down, their tails are all-purpose - to raise the alarm, to swim and to balance while sitting on flat surfaces. It’s unlikely that you could make a fashionable hat from this one, but he should be a great friend and a little reminder that it’s time to go back-to- work. In Native American culture the beaver is a totem animal, that symbolises work-life balance, patience and family values, in short it is connected with building our lives up around our dreams. Also it a national symbol of Canada!
