6 Wild Animals to Spot in Quebec
When you love nature and you’re in Quebec, there is always beauty around you. It’s truly magical to be immersed in the habitats of wild animals and witness their activities. Certain animals can certainly be harder to spot than others, however many are frequently seen.
Canada’s national animal is the cute and furry beaver. To this day, the beaver is featured on the 5 cent coin known as the “buck”. It is quite common to see the creations of beavers in lakes and rivers across Quebec, called a beaver dam. Beavers are hefty builders, cutting trees with their own teeth and lugging the wood to build these dam homes where they hide from predators, and store food. They certainly have Olympic swimmer bodies and not only are they on our money, they have also inspired the shape of the famous Canadian desert « beaver tail ». Spoiler alert (it’s not really a beaver’s tail, it’s a delicious sweet)
