Beavers

Recommended Posts

So I'm not sure where to post this, but I hit a SoCal creek today in the IE and came across a beaver. I have video but can't share it here? Anyways I didn't think there was beaver here? I never seen one in person and was shocked to see one up close. Absolutely amazing. 

 

Biggest creek bass for the day

I tried that but it in the past but it was removed. I can maybe message you if you want to see it.

 

Anyways I thought beavers were only in the real forest. Not the ghetto creeks of the Socal desert. Such a trip. 

 

 

As long as the video isn't promotional, doesn't have anything inappropriate in it, follows the forum rules, you can post it. Lots of people post their videos here.

So that's the problem is I have a fishing channel. I'm experienced with YouTube. I have another channel for a different sport with like 10k followers

If your youtube is the same as your screen name, has watermarks, ends with anything asking for subs/likes, basically anything that can be deemed promotional, it won't be allowed.

Yeah, no YouTube. I don't sell anything or what not but I know how to photoshop and created my own logo for the channel. I get a little money here and there if the views of my other channel for a different sport. Plus I'm cursing in the video lol.

 

Anyways it was cool to see a beaver in the desert of Socal. I wouldn't believe it if I didn't see it myself.

They're cool animals when they're not tearing stuff up. They get huge here. I trapped one several years ago that was nearly 80 pounds.

That's huge. Big enough to be a dangerous animal. This one was about the size of a fat beagle. He wasn't too concerned with me and kinda did his own thing. 

 

I was a few feet from him in like 2ft deep water 

 

According to Google there are no beavers in Socal

Can you post an image from a frame of the video?

I could but I doubt youll see anything, ill i got is horrible shakey wobbly cell phone camera footage for a few seconds of him underwater. I got a few good looks at him up close, I was just a few feet from his burrow when he came out. but he was pretty much gone by the time I took the cell phone out.

Yeah I did some google searching about them once I get home. Everything that I could find in regards to them being in California, was about the sierra nevadas, or the san joaquin and sacremento rivers up in central cali.........Not able to find anything about them being in SoCal except for this which states they are not found here.

 

Range / Habitat: Beavers are found throughout North America except for the extreme northern regions of Canada, the deserts of the southwest United States

 

So I am guessing I stumbled on a rare isolated pocket of them.

from his burrow

Like a burrow in the bank?  You should Google an image of a muskrat. 
 

Edit:  I just learned that your area also potentially has Nutria. You should look that up as well. Not good if you have Nutria.

This sounds right. Beavers build domed structures with entry below water level. Could be a muskrat. Don’t know about Nutria, but have heard they can get quite large.

You may have discovered Nutria and should immediately contact the DFW for eradication.

Yeah I'm aware of nutria up in the Sacramento river. This thing had a big old tail, could have been a muskrat. Apparently beavers have burrows in the bank too from what I have read. I don't think it was a nutria. A muskrat seems possible though.

Showed the video to a online buddy who creek fishes out in Ventura county, he said he's seen a few too.

That's what I thought too, beavers build dams and big dome houses this thing had a burrow in the bank. There was no beaver dam etc. So I'm now leaning more towards muskrat. I don't think it was a nutria. 

 

Anyways apparently beavers live in burrows in the bank too.

They definitely burrow. Been on river trips to Colorado and been by plenty of areas where they spook out of the water and into their hole in the side of the bank.
