Why You should Name Animals
Naming animals is something humans do if we want to form a bond with a pet or an animal we often see at a zoo. Also, pets or wild animals form a bond in response to their names. Interestingly animals are able to recognize human speech patterns. They are able to associate their names with their identity, much in the same way we use our own language. As our way of forming clans or families, we also add animals who come into our lives to become part of our clan or family. These animals need to be differentiated and one way we differentiate these animals is through naming them. Humans name animals all the time and this has been done even centuries ago. In addition, naming animals is another way people exercise their dominance over other less intelligent creatures. We also tend to see traits in the animals we name which we may believe indicate a character such as wisdom, empathy, humour. Naming is also a practical way to identify an animal. It is much easier to refer to an animal at a zoo or game park with a name in than with a number.

Species Of Beavers
There are two types of beavers, namely the North American beaver with a scientific name castor canadensis and also called the Canadian beaver, which can be found in Canada, the United States and some parts of northern Mexico. The second type of beaver is the Eurasian beaver with a scientific name Castor fibre. This beaver is native to Europe and some parts of Asia. The Eurasian beaver was almost hunted to extinction in Europe, for its fur and for castoreum, a scent gland secretion known to have medicinal properties. The North American beaver is one of the largest rodents on the continent. It has a double coat fur that consists of long, coarse outer hairs that are dark brown and short, with fine inner hairs. Europe’s largest native rodent is the Eurasian beaver. This beaver looks almost the same as the North American beaver, however it is much larger and has a narrower muzzle and tail. These two typed of beavers are not genetically compatible and therefore cannot be interbred to create a hybrid subspecies. The beaver has long been trapped for its fur, for clothing as well as hats, a practice that almost decimated populations in the early 19th century.

Both types of beavers are vegetarian. Most people think that beavers feed only on wood, but these animals enjoy aquatic plants, sedges, pondweed, water lilies, grasses as well as shrubs. Beavers also eat berries during the summer season. In winter both type of beavers gnaw the bark of birch, poplar, willow, quaking aspen, cottonwood, alder and maple trees. Chewing helps stimulate new vegetative growth, and helps the revitalization and health of riparian zones. When the weather is cold, beavers store their food underwater in order to get to it from their lodges when pond water freezes over. Beavers also like soft plants such as mushrooms, leaves, ferns, and the roots of water plants and sometimes beavers will eat corn and beans. Beavers have orange front teeth that have a special coating. These teeth grow continuously, but they are worn down by eating. Beavers also have teeth in the back of their mouths which are flat. The back teeth serve as grinders for the food the beaver chops with its front teeth. If beavers do not wear their teeth down over time they can actually starve since they cannot be able to close their mouths and grind their food with the molar teeth.
