The Inside Of A Beaver’s Home Is Weird AF

Built above the water line, with an underwater entrance. Beavers are pretty good at keeping unwanted visitors out. Ever wonder what the inside looks like?

Built above the water line, with an underwater entrance. Beavers are pretty good at keeping unwanted visitors out. Ever wonder what the inside looks like?

On ‘What’s Inside’ this family found an abandoned beaver Lodge, and decided to check it out.

They swam to the entrance and got a little look, then they got broke out their tools and really dug into it.

Before we go further, a quick clarification of terms.

The DAM is what a beaver builds to block a river or stream and control water levels upstream.

With those water levels higher, they are able to build a Lodge. It’s their den/home. It’s dry inside, but the entrance is below the water line, so you have to swim to get into it.

How strong is the structure they built? Strong enough to deter bears. And, as you’ll see in the video, to break a metal shovel.

As fun as this video is, here’s another one from a couple of years back that takes a very different approach. (The older camera didn’t have quite the same video quality, unfortunately.)

Instead of BREAKING into the lodge, this guy dove down and SWAM INTO it.

Which video did you like better? Let us know.

Get Doug Giles’ book, Rise, Kill and Eat: A Theology of Hunting from Genesis to Revelation today!

If a person looked to Scripture and paid particular attention to the passages within the Bible that address the topic of hunting, then they’d walk away thinking not only is hunting animals tolerated but it is endorsed by God. And that’s exactly what this little book is about: proving that God, from Genesis to Revelation, is extremely cool with hunters and hunting. I’ll go out on a biblical limb and claim right off the bat that you cannot show me, through the balance of the Bible, that the God of the Scripture is against the responsible killing and the grilling of the animals He created. ~Doug Giles

In his killer new book RISE, KILL & EAT: A Theology of Hunting From Genesis to Revelation Doug carries on with his courageous war against the lunatic fringe who dare recommend Bambi solutions to the annual production of edible wildlife. –Ted Nugent
