Beavers are well-known as impressive and talented engineers and builders. Also, these famously busy rodents are unusual! From sharp teeth to leathery tails. Some odd facts about the anatomy of these creatures: Beavers have vanilla-scented butts, because of their 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. This ceramic beaver 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 symbolizes work-life balance, patience, and family values.
