Sounding off on life, family, theology, and the issues of the day.
I think that rodent is cute.
It's a RAT the size of raccoon! Cute? Really?
I had to double check and make sure I wasn't on Kristen's blog. WOW. I'm not even sure WHAT that rodent is...definitely looks like the one from Princess Bride.
It's called a bamboo rat. I guess there's a species of African forest rat that's BIGGER. Apparently, the Chinese EAT these suckers in some places.
Okay, I had to do some research. According to the Telegraph, this was taken in Fuxian. The ones in Yunnan are actually the Sumatra bamboo rat which are bigger than this one! Either way...pretty freaky & if they start selling them in the market here, I don't know what I'll do...
As long as the ONLY time you see them, they're dead, well okay (I guess). But can you imagine seeing one of those ALIVE? Goodness...nightmarish.
wow! that is all I have to say. well and, "Joe how did you find this?"
