Rodentia – Rodents

They came early, expanded exponentially, and spread spectacularly

Rodents are tiny-legged furry creatures with ever-growing incisors (so they must gnaw continuously to keep them leveled); imagine a rat, a beaver, or a sweet little hamster. However, you’d be mistaken to go as far as rabbits and hares, but hey! You’re close, very close, in fact!

Rodents bear a rather indecent reputation for carrying some infectious diseases and infestations, from plagues to lice. And still, they’re a vital part of our food chains, consisting massive biomass (and 40% of all mammalian species). You’re not alone if you’ve ever wondered how a notorious mouse got into your house, as these tiny trekkers can pop out of holes as narrow as would only fit a pencil!
