a very large bulky rodent with rounded head and small rounded ears. Scaly tail, large, black, horizontally flattened, and paddle-shaped.

(Sorry for the facebook-esque response, chief! Speaking of FB---you're lighting the IR group up. Please don't forsake us!)

Hoping to, leaving late this month! My objective is the Feldtmann loop, which I will approach by means of an extremely sneaky flanking maneuver that is certain to catch it off guard. What about you?

An unlikely source of photos of the Beaver in action. They don't mention it by name, but this is it, an LCM.
