The Castoroides Feliconcisor is a large beaver from the late Pliocene to the late Pleistocene period which displays a friendly temperament along with its herbivorous diet.
These creatures use their powerful teeth to cut through wood and often build small beaver dams near the water which they aggressively defend if violated.
Castoroides can be found swimming around in the water or walking near it on land and will usually stay near their dams as they are always cautious if someone attempts to damage them or steal resources it has collected.
When approached by humans, these friendly creatures will pretty much ignore them even if they walk near their dams that they have built but once a survivor attempts to take form the dams or damage them, these friendly creatures suddenly turn into a pack of rabid creatures set out to kill.
Tribes utilize the Castoroides for their ability to harvest a substantial amount of resources from trees and bushes as well as their capacity to carry it and even craft from their saddles.
Castoroides love to collect wood and build dams where they usually stay but there are times when creatures may destroy these dams or survivors would steal from them.
These creatures pretty much are oblivious to the dangers around them until they feel threatened in which they do retaliate and during such events, a lot of them teaming up on a creature usually goes well for them.
Tribes value this creature due to its ability to harvest well from trees and bushes and being a species of beaver, these creatures can get one quickly to their destination by travelling in the water.

When in dire need of wood, tribes can utilize this creature to easily replenish their stocks and even craft on the way back to base or even heading to seize an area or tame other creatures.
This modern creature surprisingly still exists regardless of the fact that it tends to play around and build but luckily for them, survivors have become fond of their abilities and take them in as long as they can be domesticated.
