Do beavertails really have cross-hatch marks on them, or is that something that Kindergarten teachers just brainwashed us into believing?
I have no idea. Beavers became extinct in Britain in the 16th century so it's not part of my cultural heritage.
Yes they do. Up here in Canada we didn't manage to kill them all off, they are still merrily building dams and flooding random roads in the wilderness.
