What is the story behind this scene? [ View Answer ]


Beaver spent some time at this feeding station. The bark was gnawed off the sticks.

But wait there is more to the story! You should have also noticed the scent mound. Beaver will build scent mounds of mud or sand and apply secretions from a musk gland. In this photo, the scrape used to build the mound is more prominent than the mound itself.
