    Eager beaver is a Canadian army expression that refers to the industrious beaver, our national animal. The expression was not recorded before 1940 but likely derives from similar expressions, such as "busy as a beaver." Eager beaver is usually applied derisively to someone who is overly industrious or zealous.

    Have you wacthed Discovery?
    The beaver is remarkable for its industry and skill on constructing its habitation and creating dams to preserve its water supply. This gace rise to the verb "beaver away" for someone who works very hard.

    I admire their hard working. Very impressive if you know how they build a house to prevent the cold in winter. :D

    'Beaver' can also mean 'vagina', so it can be used to mean ' sex'.
