It’s important to us that you understand how big this beaver was. Just like modern beavers, it was semiaquatic -- it lived both on the land and in the water. The difference is that today’s beavers do a pretty special thing - one that the giant beaver probably didn’t, or couldn’t, do.

That is neat. They have one at Midland Center for the Arts. I did not know it went extinct so recently. I usually think of it as an ice age animal, but the first human civilizations were popping up when it died out.

'you would definitely know if it was still around' man idk. When I tell people that the Amazonian river otter can get up to 6 feet long, jaws drop.

The giant beavers were giants. Man killed off the giants in many categories. Man was around when the giant beaver went extinct. As the giant beaver survived several cycles of warming and glacial advance that probably did not kill them. The giant beaver died like other large animals because of man.

Do a video on when grass first appeared in earth's history and please explain why our ancestors tolerated the cold of the ice age, yet we still freeze our butts off during the winter. It's totally unfair to me in my opinion of why we can't survive harsh conditions.

I'm going to quibble about the reconstruction at 3:36. The tail vertebrae were flattened similar to Castor. They didn't have a tail like the muskrat or rounded. ( I worked at a natural history museum and sculpted life sized reconstructions for exhibit)

@PBSEons So, most modern mammals are rodents (right?) and they've pretty much stuck to the original "design" of being small and fast and diggy which helped them outlast the dinos, SO: has there ever been an Age Of Rodents wherein rodents filled all the niches from big predator on down? This video made me think of this...

Got scarce and disappeared with the other megafauna? As spreading populations of h. Sapiens ran out of mammoths, camels, horses & etc. to eat? Question: Were they TASTY?

When I hear that a species existed only about a million years before going extinct I don’t think that’s very long. But then I realize that humans have only existed about 1/5th of that and civilization has only existed for like 6 thousand years.
