Week #23 Beaver Grooming

Weekly Video #23 – Beavers groom and oil their fur coat to keep it waterproof. Special glands produce the oil which the beavers distribute on their body with their front and hind feet. The toes on their hind feet also help to comb debris out of their fur. This video also features the beavers engaging in mutual grooming, using their teeth to help get the other’s hard-to-reach spots!
