Beavers are quite graceful in the water, where they use their large, webbed rear feet like swimming fins, and their paddle-shaped tails like rudders to swim at speeds of up to five miles an hour.
Beavers are excellent swimmers and spend a large amount of their time in the water. They have adapted to their aquatic life and have webbed hind feet that they use to swim up to 6 mph.
