The American beaver is one of the  two living kinds of beaver, the other animal is the Eurasian beaver. It’s the second largest rodent in  the world  (behind the capybara of Southern  America) and can  weight  up to 50 to 60 pounds (23–27 kg). American beavers are heavyset animals, with tight trunks and short legs; webbed feet; and broad, flat tails covered with scales. American beavers are structuring dykes , collecting of wood , leaves, mud , and branch that supply these  rodents with profound water habitats in which to shield from predators. Dams also provide winter refuge for other species and create wetlands. Beavers are a keystone species to an ecosystem, with their existence  certainly  influencing  the landscape and food web wherever they remain .

The brown bear is one of the biggest and most vigorous mundane carnivores in North America. This ursine has deep talons  that are used basically  for digging, and it is able to reach magnificent  clip despite  its  (454 kg) heaviness  some people  have been known to speed up to 35 mph (56 kph)  following their prey. As its name reveals , brown bears have a coat of black, brown fur  with longer external  hair, frequently in a different  color ;  also they have strong muscles in their shoulders that give them enough strength to dig.

Not as  very dangerous as its reputation yet  crowded sufficiently  in the south-eastern United States to feel the inhabitants nervous mostly  pond and pool owners, the American Alligator is a pure  North American institution. Some full grown alligators can attain tallness of more than 13 feet (4 m) and weights of half a ton (455 kg), but the majority is modestly sized. It’s  a very bad  idea to feed an American alligator, which inures  it to human friction and makes grave attacks mostly .

The monarch butterfly is also  keystone species, it  has a black body spotted  with white color  and light orange wings with black borders and veins (some black spaces  are mottled  with white spots too). Monarchs toxic  to eat because of  the  banes in milkweed , which monarch caterpillars eat  before they start  their metamorphosis ,and their shinning  coloration works  like a caution to possible  predators. The monarch butterfly is most  known for its surprising  annual emigrations, from the south of  Canada and the north of  United States down to Mexico.

The most widespread armadillo in the world is  the nine-banded armadillo, it domains across the expansion  of North, Central, and South America. Measuring 14 to 22 inches (36–56 cm) from head to tail and weighing 5 to 15 pounds (2–7 kg), the nine-banded armadillo is a solo , insectivore ,  nocturnal ; that’s why it features more  frequently as road kill on North American highways. When frightened, the nine-banded armadillo can jump  a 5-foot (1.5 m) vertical leap, thanks to the pressure  and pliability of the armored scutes over  its back.

Uncommonly,  clumped titmouse hatchlings sometimes remains in their nest for the whole year, aiding their parents to grow the next generation of  titmouse flock.
