An absolutely adorable and friendly Veggie Beaver.
The Veggie Beaver (genus Yamstor) is a primarily nocturnal, large, semi-aquatic veggie rodent. These guys are very industrious creatures. In fact they are often referred to as nature's architects.
And I actually first found Chewy while he was trying to construct a dam inside my somewhat cloggled kitchen sink.
He has been living with us for a few weeks now. He gets a bit nervous when we turn the oven on, but by now, Eggbert has assured him that only the frozen food should be afraid of us in this house.
Beavers like Chewy eat bark, roots, leaves and twigs. But this little guy here, just absolutely looooooves carrots!
