The North American beaver is the lumberjack of the rodent world. With nothing but its four front teeth, the beaver can cut down a small tree in a matter of minutes. Using its sharp incisors, the beaver will slice through the wood, stripping away the bark first and they gnawing at the softer inside. It works its way around the tree trunk winding it down until the tree is ready to fall.

The Rainier Tower in the Metropolitan Tract of Seattle, Washington, at 1301 Fifth Avenue, could have been designed by the North American beaver. The 31-story skyscraper is raised up on a 11-story concrete pedestal that tapers towards ground level, as if a beaver had chewed it at its base. The locals love to call it the “beaver building”.
