Drifter the beaver was between two and four years old when he came to us in 2004. He is unique as he only has half a tail, having lost the other half to frostbite before coming to us. He is a herbivore who particularly enjoys aspen and dandelions, roots, leaves flowers and all. Drifter has a bit of a sweet tooth. He loves apples and berries!
Kashkuanashku, or “Kash” for short, was born in 2016 at another Canadian Zoo. Since he was born in human care, he cannot be released back into the wild. His name comes from the Innu language and means “it is cloudy”.
Look at Kash’s tail when he's swimming. He uses it to change direction and dive under the water.
