Osteological differences between the east european castor fiber orientoeuropaeus beavers and canadian castor canadensis beavers



Osteological differences between the east european castor fiber orientoeuropaeus beavers and canadian castor canadensis beavers



Zoologicheskii Zhurnal 62(9): 1434-1436



On the basis of studies of the skeleton in C. f. orientoeuropaeus and C. canadensis, it was established that the latter have longer clavicles, tibiae and fibulae and wider tail vertebrae. The structural peculiarities of the skeleton allow the Canadian beavers to use their lambs in a greater variety of ways. The wides tail vertebrae in C. canadensis serve as a safe support for attachment of the muscles of a wider tail.
