Amazin' Amazon Mystery Animals

Mystery Animal #17: House in a House in a House

I'm a single unit
houseboat protected by my hull/
I'd invite you in for tea, but I'm afraid my
house is full/ For inside my house are forty more which
I'll deposit in the shore/ From those houses will emerge, with a
waddle and a surge/ Mini-houseboats just like me, to paddle the river as wide as a sea.
