It’s important to us that you understand how big this beaver was. Just like modern beavers, it was semiaquatic — it lived both on the land and in the water. The difference is that today’s beavers do a pretty special thing – one that the giant beaver probably didn’t, or couldn’t, do.

Thank you to these paleoartists for allowing us to use their wonderful illustrations:
