Description

The much-fêted beavers of Martinez. This family lives in a restored brackish creek and are apparently completely unafraid of people. As a kid I used to go fishing near beavers and they would tail slap and dive if I looked at them wrong from 100 yards. You could practically pet these guys they get so close.
