European beaver

We have received pictures of a beaver family from Rosenheim (Bavaria, Germany) taken by German photographers. The photographers, Bettina and Christian Kutschenreiter, have been able to have an friendly relationship, nearly a friendship, with a family of wild beavers. Through daily visits within two years, the beavers got used to the photographers. They were able to approach the animals on a very short distance, were even allowed to pet them! The images show behaviors of wild beavers never before seen and documented. Highly unusual are the pictures of beavers in snow and ice. In hard winters the keep open an exit in the ice that enables them foraging at the river bank. Equally unusual are the pictures of beavers and fish (chub). The beaver stir up a lot of mud, in which the chubs seem to find food. Sometimes the beaver are surrounded by a swarm of chubs.

Wildlife in the city

Wild animals are gaining ground. Everywhere in Germany wild boar, red foxes, raccoons and other wild animals are conquering the cities. More and more wild animals are attracted by the human vicinity. The larger a city, the more manifold is its wildlife. Average more than 10,000 different species are living in an European metropolis. Wildlife especially loves Berlin – the German capital is also the European capital of the animals. In Berlin are living estimated 20,000 different plant and animal species. Thus, the capital is one of the most species-rich cities in Europe.

Human and animal

For centuries humans have caused wild animals to become domestic animals. Long ago tamed animals have just been helpers during the hunt or sources of meat. Today pets are often full-value members of the family.
