It makes a lot of sense that the beavers are providing the habitat that the frogs require.

I think beavers have become a very important part of the ecosystems they inhabit. If you make such a huge change to the habitat the way they do, things are bound to adapt to take advantage.

Yes, beavers are dam useful. Except some wise guy decided to introduce them to South America, where they are becoming a dam nuisance.
