It’s A Deer. It’s A Kangaroo. It’s . . . a Giant Rat!

From Oregon’s KATU News:
MILWAUKIE, Ore. - A couple of Milwaukie High School students made a bizarre discovery on the way to school Tuesday morning.
Nicco Phillips and Lexi Eads found an exotic animal hopping around their neighborhood.
At first, they thought it was a little deer or maybe a small kangaroo but after making some calls, they found out it is actually a Patagonian Cavy, the world's fourth largest rodent.
Check out the great photos.
