On Thursday, the walkers in the Frogner Park were surprised by a beaver swimming around the creek running through the capital park.
The beaver swam around in the water, consuming a considerable amount of ground elder along the riverbank, seemingly undisturbed by the many spectators who stopped to look at it.
The animal seems to have moved into the Frogner River, which is the stream that flows through the Frogner Park and flows into the Frognerkilen.
The beaver is the largest rodent in the northern hemisphere and can weigh up to 40 kilos. Its most distinctive feature is the flat broad tail, which looks almost like a paddle oar, according to the Norwegian Big Lexicon.
