The cute bucktoothed rodent, named River, is a resident at Bi-State Wildlife Hotline which rescues young animals in Missouri, USA.
And the two-month-old is enjoying her surroundings, with regular meals and even space to for a quick dip.
The team at Wildlife Hotline are experts in treating vulnerable animals which have been separated from their mothers.
And because of their heroic efforts, hundreds of orphaned creatures have been rehabilitated and returned to the wild.
River has been given a warm and cosy bed to sleep in and round the clock specialist care, ensuring that she will eventually be fit and healthy enough to face the world again.
Angel Wintrode, founder of Bi-State Wildlife Hotline, said: “A fisherman found River alone on a bank and called us to check her out.
“She couldn't have been more than a few days old and her home must have been washed away in severe storms which had happened that week.
“When she first arrived, she was bottle fed every five hours, and swam five times a day.
“Now she lives in a huge outdoor enclosure with an in ground pool, lots of water and fruit and vegetables.
“River will stay with us for three years as that is the age when beavers move out of the family home – when they become sexually mature and able to mate.”
