Now that’s just nutty!

Did you know that a squirrel's brain is about the size of a walnut? Is that with or without the shell . . .

The cleanest animal in the rodent family, the male tree squirrel takes twice as long, as the female, to groom itself. We guarantee all of our squirrels are clean, too.

Speaking of Rodentia or the rodent family, the largest members is the capybara. From Central and South America, these guys can reach a length of 4 feet (120 cm) and a weight of 75 to 100 lb (34–45 kg). You know, I'm not sure I'd want to meet one of these guys face to face--that's bigger than my dog! And she's a German Shepherd/Yellow Lab mix.
