Canada's mighty beavers have been keeping busy. This newly discovered beaver dam, in Alberta's Wood Buffalo National Park, is so big it can be seen from space. Check out some more pics of the 2,788-foot marvel.

Scientists believe that the beavers started creating this Candian dam sometime in the mid-70s. The 2,788-foot dam dwarfs the average beaver dam, which in Canada is anywhere from 32-feet to 320-feet long.
