I photographed this North American Beaver in an area behind Tuff Pond, which is located at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma.

I was sitting on the service road, hand-holding my camera and lens.

Beaver Swimming Toward Me

This is the same North American Beaver (North American Beaver Eating Water Plants) I photographed and posted about.

The Beaver Swimming Toward Me was photographed at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. It was carrying the water plants it was eating in its mouth. It wanted to cross the road but changed its mind when it saw my pickup.

North American Beaver Eating Water Plants

I have been seeing a North American Beaver Eating Water Plants at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. It seems to be in the same spot every morning I’m in the area for the past several months. It had its back to me the other times I saw it, but this time it was facing me.

North American Beavers Fighting

I was photographing four North American Beavers at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma when two of them started fighting. I read battles can lead to deep bites to the flanks, tail, and rump.
