Weekly Photo Challenge – Big

Dear Friends,

Beavers are best known for building dams on rivers and streams and then building their homes, called lodges, behind the dams. We do this by cutting trees with our large, powerful front teeth. It’s hard work and very time consuming.

I cannot claim to have cut down this enormous tree though. It was in the Tahune Forest Reserve near Geeveston in southern Tasmania, and fell in a storm over 40 years ago. This tree may be dead, but it’s a host to other plants and animals who have made their home in and on it. I didn’t venture any further in case there were creepy crawlies living inside!

Justin.
