Beavers are really popular in Canada! They’re our national animal (yep, they were designated back in 1975). 

Beavers have been immortalized on stamps back when the country was just made up of colonies (really way back, like 1849!). 

The beaver is on our 5-cent coin and it was even chosen as the official mascot of the 1976 Summer Olympics. The mascot's name was Amik, which means beaver in Ojibway.

With so much interest for this furry creature, do you think you know everything about them?
