So last night on the way home from town, I spotted a mountain beaver.  This is my second such sighting of a mountain beaver.  Upon seeing the mountain beaver, my excitement surged within as I eagerly pursued to get closer.

Mountain beavers are distinctly different from regular beavers.  Once you've set your eyes upon mountain beaver, you'll never be satisfied with regular beaver.

Yep, very interesting to study.  They are kinda an ancient type of rodent.  Not many people see and/or notice them.

Very cool experience to have seen one!

I saw one crossing a forest road in front of me about 8-10 years ago in Olympic National Forest.  It had a mouthful of greens it was busy carrying off to cache I presume.  I had to look it up when we got back home as I wasn't familiar with them at the time.

I thought that was in rather poor taste to show an immature mountain beaver in the Wikipedia article......

I never heard of this beastie!  I think I learned something today. Thank you.

While I have never sighted a grizzly in the wild, I feel kinda special having twice spotted a mountan beaver.  But there is so much more out there to view and I hope to see as many different animals as I can.

How cool! I'm one of those folks who have also seen a mountain beaver; 2 to be exact. I lived in Oregon for 13 years and spent a lot of time hiking in the coast range. Somewhere in one of my boxes of old photos, I have a pic of one of those mountain beavers. I'll have to look for it one of these days.

Cool beans, as I had never heard of them either.

I once had a marmot chase my car down Pikes Peak road, though.

Many moons ago someone reported seeing a beaver above treeline, near the base of the Mt. Washington summit cone. Not the same, but almost as neat as seeing a "living fossil".

The title of this thread reminded me of the backpacker porn movie script that monkeyboy started a few years ago. I recall that forum members, using their porn star aliases, were featured, and beavers were also mentioned in the script. :D
