A beaver is a type of semi-aquatic rodent known for building dams. It features a large pair of teeth that are excellent for gnawing.

Rubeus Hagrid was known to sometimes wear enormous boots that were made of beaverskin[1] and he also sometimes wore a long beaverskin coat.[2]

In 1994, the accidental use of the Tooth-Growing Spell on Hermione Granger caused her teeth to grow to a point that she looked like a beaver.[3]
