Rodents are one of the most varied types of mammals. In fact, rodents are the largest group of mammals on the planet with a whopping 4,660 species. Rodents are all mammals with ever-growing pairs of rootless upper and lower incisors. They can be found on virtually every continent except Antarctica.

Rodents vary enormously in size, with the smallest rodent, the pygmy jerboas, weighing less than 3.75 grams. The largest rodent, on the other hand, the capybara, weighing up to 150 pounds. Rodents come in all shapes, sizes, and textures, making them excellent companions. Some of the most common rodents as pets are hamsters, gerbils, fancy mice, chinchillas, and guinea pigs.
