Rodents

Rodents are relatively small, prolific mammals. All rodents have a pair of front teeth that continue to grow throughout their lives; they must gnaw on food (or other objects) to grind these teeth down. The name Rodentia is derived from the Latin word "rodere", which means "to gnaw".

Most rodents are herbivores (plant-eaters). Some rodents, like the house mouse, are omnivores (eating plants and animals). A few rodents, like the Australian water rat, are carnivores (meat-eaters)

There are about 2,000 different species of rodents alive today. The biggest rodent is the Capybara, which is almost 4.5 feet (1.3 m) long. The smallest rodent is the Pygmy jerboa, whose body is just over an inch (47 mm) long.
