About This Quiz

Rodents are a type of mammals which belong to the Rodentia order and can be found on every single continent on earth except Antarctica. They are the most diversified order and can be found living in a variety of habitats but are particularly known for being in human-made environments. Over the years, they have been given a bad name as animals which spread disease, and while there are some of them do, the majority of them do not.

Rodents are characterized by having a single pair of continuously growing incisors in both their lower and upper jaw, which they use to burrow, gnaw their food and defend themselves from predators. Most of them are quite small in size with short limbs, long tails, and robust bodies. Some of the most well-known rodents include mice, rats, chipmunks, porcupines, squirrels, prairie dogs, hamsters, guinea pigs, gerbils and capybaras.
