As you may know, the beaver is Canada's national animal. On first impression, it might not seem like a very cool animal... not like a tiger, bear or mythical dragon. But what other animal can make a giant house in a river, all the while sporting a big toothy smile! And once you take into consideration that the beaver stands for industry and perseverance, it actualy makes perfect sense as a national animal. The odd thing is though, I have grown up in Canada all my life and have yet to see one in the wild. My last "sighting" ended up actually being a muskrat.
