Are beavers territorial?



  1. 0 Votes

    Yes they are. Beaver colonies are made up of a breeding pair and their offspring. Beavers are generally territorial and will defend their territory against other beavers. This makes a lot of sense because beavers spend nearly all of their time building and maintianing their constructed environment. Therefore, it is essential that the limited food sources immediately near to their ponds are not eaten by other beavers. Beavers mark their territory with mud piles that are marked with castor oil or scent musk deposited from scent glands. Castor oil was once collected to place on beaver traps as a lure.
