Beautiful Albino Squirrel

This would be a dream come true for me to have an Albino Squirrel as a pet. I mean, I'd love to have a squirrel as a pet. I'm always watching out for orphaned baby squirrels around my house. But, to have an Albino... that would just be amazing!

Mouse on Cat

I don't think that cat is very happy. The mouse probably isn't but it makes for a cute pic.

Naked Mole ras are so precious.

Aren't they the most adorable little critters. How can anyone thing they are ugly. Yes, they are unusual... but not *ugly*

Sorry for the 'Fotosearch' Logo. I got this pic from one of those 'Royalty Free' photo stock sites.

Various Rodent Pictures.

Someone asked me "Where do you find ALL these pictures of rodents" Well... I said "Unfortunately i can't reveal my many sources for that would take away the uniqueness of 'Wonderful World of Rodents". He he he. But, looking for all these photo's (for all of my 3 animal blogs) could easily be an 8 hour job but, it's a labor of love job that's for sure. I enjoy every moment of it and i hope that the pay off is that you all enjoy 'Wonderful World of Rodents' and my other blogs. -Rebecca

Do me a favor... let me know which of these photo's you like the best. I'd really appreciate it :)

Smart Mouse

To cute. I had a Mouse once that looked just like this cutie.

'Friendly' The Chipmunk- Pics removed


'Friendly' the chipmunk photo's have been removed sadly because i received an e mail from the guy who took the photo's that he wants them down. While he was nice about it i think it is kinda sad. If i were him I'd want the wonderful story to reach more people and with my blog it would have. I just think it's rather lame for him to want them removed.

I have tons of professionaly style photos of my rats that i took and i let people use them all the time. The Friendly the chipmunk story is so wonderful you just think that the owner of the pictures and the owner of the story would want more people to see it and for more people to enjoy it.

While i respect his choise i think it's kinda sad that he asked me to take the down but he is entitled to do this. Poor Friendly, now all the people who view my blog won't be able to enjoy the story. I will not put the link up to the story.


Guinea Pig Town

This is the Guinea Pig enclosure at the Edmonton Valley Zoo.

I wish there was more info with the photo but there wasn't. I'd like to know if these were rescues or just an exhibit at the zoo. Anyone know?

To cute! He sure looks happy doesn't he?

Found an interesting 'Small Animal' Website

I just came across this Small Animal website and thought I'd share:

No Cheese- I'm A Mouse


Mice, it seems, get cheesed off with cheese and would much prefer chocolate.

According to scientists, mice don't like cheese after all and would rather have food with high sugar content.

Mice prefer high sugar food
Mice prefer high sugar food

The subject has been exercising researchers from Manchester Metropolitan University and the Stilton Cheese Makers Association.

As part of a wider study into animals and food, they found that a mouse's diet is primarily made up of grains and fruit.

It found that they would reject something as strong in smell and rich in taste as cheese.

Dr David Holmes, an animal behaviourist from the university, said: "Clearly the supposition of mice liking cheese is a popular premise.

"Mice have evolved almost entirely without cheese or anything resembling it.

"Mice respond to the smell, texture and taste of food and cheese is something that would not be available to them in their natural environment and therefore not something that they would respond to."

Nigel White of the Stilton Cheese Makers Association said: "Blue Stilton cheese has a very distinctive aroma and has a huge fan base across the world but mice are clearly not among that."

Or even cheddar, it seems.

Various Rodent Art

Here is some Rodent Art i can across tonight.

If you'd like to purchase any of these, they are all available at Type in 'rodents'

This is quite pretty

Some pretty art.

There's a Rodent World?

WOW, I'd love to visit here.

The only info with the photo says "The entrance to Rodent World at the Zoobic Park of Subic Bay Freeport Zone" I have no idea what that means however.

Anyone know where this is? Or has anyone visited here? Anywhere i can get more info on it?

Ps... sometimes i am unable to download a photo from Flickr, does anyone know how i can accomplish this? I think someone once told me how to but i can't remember now. Any help would be appreciated.
