At the Smithsonian National Zoo, a beaver named Aspen goes about her day as she uses her teeth to cut down a tree. Because of course, as Gayle Bass says — "beavers gotta beave!" But, in addition to adorable faces, beavers are clever animals with a unique skill set. Aspen's demonstrating the way beavers construct dams that not only serve as homes for them, but also provide aquatic habitats for countless other species, too!
