What’s Your Rodent IQ? (Quiz)

There are thousands of different rodent species, from agoutis to zokors. Even taking into account only the populations of the more widespread species, there are billions of individuals worldwide—so it’s probably wise to learn a little about our small fuzzy neighbors, even if you don’t consider yourself a rodent lover.

Take this quiz to expand your rodent horizons!

A. Their very long tails

I did pretty good, scored a 9...I've had a Robo hamster, named "Tinker". I really liked her and she was very tame. Sad, but she actually wanted to get super close to me one day, she (2.6 years old) curled up in my hands and passed away! She was a good little girl! I still have her cage and am thinking of getting another Robo. She looked like a chipmunk, but no tail, tan & white, with a sweet face (2" long). Well, this was fun!
