Summary

Summary

Rodents make up 40% of the mammal population -- the most significant single group. Yet despite their numbers and adaptability, some species may soon become extinct. Over 100 color photos enhance this look at a variety of rodents, including the common house mouse, subterranean-dwelling blind mole rat, flying squirrel, beaver, and giant capybara.
