Gray Squirrel Features
Beaver is primarily a nocturnal and semi-aquatic rodent. It belongs to the genus Castor and is presently represented by two species commonly known as the North American Beaver and the European Beaver. They are known for building dams, canals and lodges. They are the second largest rodents known all over the world. They live in colonies and make dams which are deep in water and protect them from the predators. The population of the North American beaver has declined rapidly because of excessive hunting. They are killed for fur and the glands are used as a source of medicine and perfumes. They are known for their natural trait of making dams in the ponds in which they live. They have very sharp and powerful front teeth which are used for cutting trees for building their homes as well as for feeding. They are known for their alarm signals. When frightened the beaver dives rapidly and slaps water with its broad tail. This sound is audible from large distances both above and below water. This behaviour acts as a warning signal for other beaver present inside water. Once warned by the alarm call the other beavers dive into water and do not reemerge for some time. They walk slowly on land but are effective swimmers and can remain under water for about 15 minutes.
Both the species are not genetically compatible. North American beavers have 40 chromosomes while the European beavers possess 48 chromosomes. North American beavers are also known as Canadian beavers. They feed on water lily. Beavers are common hosts of Giardia lamblia which causes giardiasis. The beaver testicles and castoreum, a bitter secretion present in the castor glands of male or female beaver is used commercially for making medicine. Castoreum is also used in perfume preparation. They are national animals of Canada. They have entered the category of endangered because of habitat destruction and mass killing.

With the young bats well able to fly, it seems that bats are showing up everywhere! They have been found in attics and chimneys in Olathe, Overland Park, Lea Wood, Lenexa, Prairie Village, Shawnee and Merriam, Kansas on a regular basis.
With the abundant source of water in the area such as the Missouri and Kansas rivers and the numerous lakes, it creates a virtual bonanza of insects on the bat's menu.
Combine this food supply with plenty of homes and commercial buildings for roosting and that makes for the perfect situation if you are a bat!
What do bats look for when selecting a roosting site?
One important thing is it must be out of the weather. The inside of an attic or cave makes for some of the best locations that are out of the wind and rain. Air flow is equally important. Bats love to select areas where the air flows across their bodies keeping them cool. The inside of an attic can reach 130 degrees and bats could not live for long in this environment without the air flow.
Professional removal is the best solution to your bat pest control problem. Trying to resolve this problem by yourself often makes it worse. Bats carry rabies and should not be handled. If you should find one outside the home or building that is laying on the ground, do not pick it up! Each year people are bitten because they picked up a bat they thought was dead. This could be a sign that the bat is rabid.
Call a professional to have them examine your home if you suspect a bat infestation. Your Wildlife Professional in the Kansas City, KS and surrounding area is A All Animal Control.

You found a baby squirrel, and now need information on how to care for it. You're about to experience one of the most rewarding activities on earth!
The ideal situation would be to return the baby to it's mother. If you place it in a small box with a warm rice bag, and tack it to the tree where you found it, it's possible that mom will come and take it back to an alternate nest. If the mother doesn't come within an hour, the baby becomes your charge.
Relax, caring for baby squirrels is easy! If you don't have the time or will to do it, every State has licensed wild animal rehabilitators who can do the job. If you do have the time and can remember the acronym, "WHAM," you can easily and confidently care for a baby squirrel!
The letter W, stands for warm. Baby squirrels need to be kept warm. You never should attempt to feed a baby until it is completely warmed. A baby squirrel should always feel warm the the touch when you pick it up. When the baby is less than 5 weeks old, (before it's eyes open,) it can easily be kept in a cardboard box. I like to use rice bags to keep my baby squirrels warm. I heat the bag in the microwave until it is warm to the touch, place it in the box, punch it down in the center to make a nest, place pieces of blanket or fleece material over the bag, put the baby squirrel in and cover it with more soft cloth. This method keeps the baby warm between feedings.
Some people like to use a heating pad on the low setting under the box. If it's placed under half of the box, the baby squirrel will climb on and off the heated side until it finds a comfortable sleeping temperature. Either way, this accomplishes the task of keeping the baby squirrel warm.
The need for calcium, especially in captivity, is one of the most critical aspects of raising a squirrel. In fact, it is the most important factor in success or failure when it comes to raising a baby squirrel! If a baby squirrel does not have an adequate source of calcium after it stops nursing, it will develop a condition called Metabolic Bone Disease, or Rickets. I don't know how many times I've gotten e-mails from panicked people telling me their 5 or 6 month old squirrel was fine one day and the next day lost the use of it's rear legs. It happens that fast, and is completely preventable!
There are many more details about how to take care of a baby squirrel, that are beyond the scope of this article.
