    Castoroides (Latin: "beaver" (castor), "like" (oides)), or giant beaver, is an extinct genus of enormous, bear-sized beavers that lived in North America during the Pleistocene. Two species are currently recognized, C. dilophidus in the Southeastern US and C. ohioensis in the rest of its range. C. leiseyorum was previously described from the Irvingtonian of Florida, but is now regarded as an invalid name. All specimens previously described as C. leiseyorum are considered to belong to C. dilophidus.

These creatures were significantly larger than modern beavers, reaching lengths of up to 2.5 meters (8.2 feet) and weights up to 100 kilograms (220 pounds). They are known for having large incisors similar to those of modern beavers, but surprisingly, showed no evidence of tree-cutting behavior.
