Today was a very very good day indeed, for today i finally got to see a real live BEAVER!!!
The little bastards have alluded my gaze for sometime now but today whilst gracefully kayaking down the RGD with Steve Reid we spotted a prime example of this fine Canadian animal. And i will let you what, they are fooking massive!!!! Rather than being the size of a cat or mutant gerbil, they are the size of a bloody dog. A fair sized dog at that.
The only animal of BC I have yet to see is a cougar. But i reckon if i do see one of those buggers then it would probably be chewing on my leg rather than chewing on a branch. which leads me to ponder, do i really really want to see one still?
