Take that, you lazy-assed American beavers!

The world’s biggest dam, believed to be 30+ years old, has been found in northern Alberta, reports AFP:

A 652-meter structure in Three Forks in the US state of Montana previously held the record for world’s largest beaver dam.

Thie said he also found evidence that beavers were repopulating old habitats after being hunted extensively for pelts in past centuries.

“They’re invading their old territories in a remarkable way in Canada,” he said. “I found huge dams throughout Canada, and beaver colonies with up to 100 of them in a square kilometer.”

“They’re re-engineering the landscape,” he said.

I know that this is really big news. For Canadians — whose five-cent piece has a beaver on it. For beavers, of course.

I wonder what space aliens think when they see it.

“Damn, that’s big?”
