New video shows a beaver kit and its mother swimming in Alhambra Creek in Martinez.

There's a new baby critter in downtown Martinez.

The beaver kit and its mother have been spotted taking a swim in Alhambra Creek.

Moses Silva captured video of the beavers at one of their most active times -- three in the morning.

This marks the eighth year a beaver's been born in Martinez since they moved in back in 2006.

The beavers attracted widespread attention when fears arose that their dam could trigger flooding. But engineers came up with a plan to reduce the risk.
