When we hear the word "rodent", we normally think of mice and rats, butt there is lots more to rodents than that!


Yes, Hedgehogs are insectivores, just like moles and shrews! But porcupines are rodents, UNlike hedgehogs! Some species of Porcupine can even climb trees!


Rats are often regarded as pets of the household, but some species DON'T raid your house; some would rather stay near rivers, like the Votsotsa!

Votsotsas, else the Malgasy Giant Jumping Rat.
