Turtle Bay received a seven-week-old male beaver from the Minnesota Zoo Wednesday.

Three kits were born and each of them needed a new home. The male selected for Turtle Bay was chosen because of his calm demeanor.

He is currently the size of a football, plus a tail, and will be raised by Turtle Bay's Animal Care Staff until his habitat within the Museum's Aquarium is built and completed.

Turtle Bay supporters, called Beaver Buddies, raised and contributed the funds needed for the habitat that will house the beaver.
