Beaver Zoological Poster - Castor fiber
The beaver is well-known for its propensity to gnaw down trees for materials to build its dam, a structure that can be so strong that bulldozers or even dynamite might be required to remove it. Its teeth grow constantly (like other rodents), so it must chew on trees and branches to keep them sharp and at a manageable length. The beaver is an herbivore and feeds on shoots, roots, and other plants; it also eats bark from its food stores during cold season. The pictured Eurasian Beaver, Castor fiber was hunted to near extinction by the beginning of the 20th Century, but its re-introduction has helped the populations bounce back significantly. This is one of a wonderful series of Scientific German Educational Charts, created in the 1950s and 60s and still produced by the original printer, internationally recognized for producing educational science charts since 1929. These charts are issued today using the original film and same methods as the first printing. They are printed without inscription for both classroom study and decorative purposes, with special attention paid to botanical detail and scientific accuracy.
Mounted on linen canvas stretched on wooden rods for display, each measures 44.5 inches tall by 32.25 inches wide (85 cm x 120 cm), and comes with a nylon cord strung through the top wooden rod for easy hanging. Each comes securely rolled and will be shipped to you in a sturdy mailing tube. These lovely botanical posters are large, colorful and impressive pieces of science decor. Add a touch of vintage classroom style to your home today!
