Beaver dam that is.

Via Slashdot, a group of beaver families in Alberta, Canada created a dam so large it’s visible from space.

(It’s the top-of-a-heart shape.)

The dam is 2,790 feet in length and took several beaver families an estimated 20 years and thousands of trees to create. By way of comparison, the Hoover dam is 1,244 feet long.

Somehow being at the top of the food chain doesn’t seem as glamorous as it used to.
