Wood-n’t you know it, our March #Supersnap goes to this nighttime shot of a beaver in Vernon County! These ecosystem engineers play a large role in shaping the waterways and wetlands throughout Wisconsin. The dams that beavers build can reach up to six and a half feet tall and stretch fifteen feet wide. A single beaver alone cuts down around 200 trees each year to use in dam construction. The bark, twigs, and leaves from each tree also serve as their main food source.
A huge thanks to Zooniverse participant @bobk47 for this #SuperSnap nomination.
