Looking for a PB jar.
Beavers are found all over Ontario. Most common in forests, beavers also expand into unforested areas where waterways are bordered by trees or shrubs. This can bring beavers into parks or green spaces created by people. The beaver's life is connected to logging both for food and to build a home. These animals cut down an average of 216 trees a year. They can fell trees up to about 40 centimetres in diameter.
Beavers shift from eating wood to plants as new growth appears in the spring. During summer, beavers will eat grasses, herbs, leaves of woody plants, fruits and aquatic plants. Although water offers excellent protection from predators, beavers are vulnerable in many ways. Beavers fall prey to wolves, coyotes, bears, lynx and wolverines when foraging on shore or migrating over land. A beaver takes only one mate, which it keeps for life. The family is the basic unit of the beaver’s society. Mating occurs in January and February.
