At dusk me and my son watched this Beaver swimming around. When I used the flash on my camera a few different times it made a typical loud splash on the water with his tail and dove under the water for a bit. Such a pleasant creature to watch! Thanks to everyone for correcting me when I said it was an Otter =P
