Beavers are intelligent, industrious and ingenious rodents. They are the engineers of the animal world. How do beavers know how to build dams, canals, and locks, and how to adjust water levels with spillways? Where do beavers get their work ethic? Why are beavers so well-designed physically for swimming, digging, and logging – three totally distinct activities? This is the first of four articles on beavers.

But now ask the beasts, and let them teach you;
And the birds of the heavens, and let them tell you.
Or speak to the earth, and let it teach you;
And let the fish of the sea declare to you.
Who among all these does not know
That the hand of the LORD has done this,
In whose hand is the life of every living thing,
And the breath of all mankind? (Job 12:7-10)
