Further research is necessary before the torpedo-shaped rodent is imported, but projects have already proved a success in France and Norway. Scottish Natural Heritage also hopes to name 17 other species including the red kite and rare corncrake as part of a wildlife re-introduction plan. ——————————————————————————————————1/3—— Swallow numbers take a dive 462 SOME FASCINATING BATS p448 Digitiser What's On Index Eco Scene

The European beaver prefers to burrow into a river bank to build its lodge. Its American cousin is the dam builder. A beaver's long, flat, scaly tail, huge teeth and average 4\ stone make this rodent the biggest in the world. ——————————————————————————————————2/3—— Further On 666 Class of '94 663 KICK-START YOUR CAREER p657 Digitiser What's On Index Eco Scene

Some reach 2-3 metres in height. During most of the year, beavers are active at night, rising at sunset and retiring at sunrise. At birth, beaver kits have a full coat of fur, and within a few hours are able to swim. ——————————————————————————————————3/3—— Fit for anything 673 Money Plus 674 GO ON-LINE WITH ...ON-LINE p651 Digitiser What's On Index Eco Scene
