Default Beavers kick ass

Who would have thought such a stupid looking creature could be so smart!

The largest beaver dam is 2790' long! They cut down trees with their teeth from upriver, and they dig channels to float logs down towards the dam (big ass trees about 8-12" think from the video i saw). The purpose of the dam is to create a lake so they can build their lodge in the middle.

To create the lodge, they pile mud and sticks into a giant pile, then swim under it and chew out the living space. This way they are protected from predators and weather. When the water ices up, they punch a hole in their dam to drop the water level a foot of so, so they can swim around under the ice and still breathe air. Amazing!
