_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.
