Rodents (known scientifically as the order Rodentia) are mammals characterized by two pairs of large, continually-growing incisor teeth, kept short by gnawing on the hard shells of seed-nuts or wood. They are found on every continent except Antarctica, and range in size from small mice to the 100-pound capybara of South America.
