Thryonomyidae – Cane rats

The family of cane rats -large wild rodents that have been recently domesticated in Africa for meat production

The larger cane rat and the lesser cane rat are two members of this family that are commonly seen in fields and farms. People of this species are outstanding athletes, both on land and in the sea. Elephant grass shoots, especially when they’re fresh, are a preferred snack. They are nocturnal by nature but can be seen during the day on rare occasions. When two men are competing for dominance, they may engage in a pushing duel. When one of them gives way, the other one gets thrown off balance because the dominant one spins on its hind legs and slams into it with its rum.
