Beavers and otters' basic biological differences are distinguished by their different taxonomical orders: Beavers belong to the order Rodentia and otters belong to the order Carnivora. The two animals also have very distinct visual differences: Where beavers are short, stocky and have wide, flat tails, otters are long, slender, and have long tapered tails. Beavers, as rodents, are herbivores, whereas otters are carnivores. Also, beavers live in lodges, whereas otters live in holts.

No. They eat mostly fish but they can also eat rabbits, otters, beavers, deer fawns, geese, ducks, gulls and carrion.

no, but some otters will steal a beavers lodge (the ones beavers live in, dams are the ones they use to block water flow) and live in there.
