Mountain Beaver -(Aplodontia rufa)
Mountain beavers, not a true beaver, are heavy bodied rodents with short limbs. They are considered the most primitive living rodent. The skull reflects these primitive traits in that it is flattened over all and the auditory bullae, or ear bones, are flask shaped. This unusual skeleton and skull allows a view into the distant past of rodents as well as mammals in general. These skeletons are excellent examples of the species and will make a great addition to any collection. Photographs are examples only. The specimen purchased may vary slightly.
