Look at them orange teeth.... I can't believe a bunch of grown men who don't know what a beaver looks like.

I know what a beaver looks like, just never saw one stuffed and roasted.

Most rodent type animals have huge front teeth. Without knowing, and just seeing a picture with little to no size reference and having been skinned and cooked (and without the big paddle tail), I don't think most folks are going to tell the difference.

I've never killed a beaver (and the ones that I've eaten didn't look anything like that).

rat


porcupine


gopher


beaver

I was (and am) judging the animal based on the teeth and the tail. Notice how the tail is wedge shaped, and look at the beaver in this pic below. Chop off the flat section of the tail and you have the same wedge tail as the critter in the roasting pan.

Aaaakthuaalllyyyyyy

Houston, Tranquillity Base here. The Eagle has landed.


Which raised some eyebrowse in Houston since Tranquility base was not an agreed callsign. Only Charles Duke knew up front they were going to use that.
