Top Ten Cutest Rodents

The Top Ten
1 Hamster Hamsters are rodents belonging to the subfamily Cricetinae. The subfamily contains about 25 species, classified in six or seven genera.

They are the cutest! They are so small and fluffy and are little balls of poofines! They are cuter than rats, mice, squirrels, and guinea pigs!

Hamsters are ADORABLE. I have a hamster named Otto and he's so small and fuzzy!

Small, furry, cute, what more could you ask for?

2 Squirrel Squirrels are members of the family Sciuridae, a family that includes small or medium-size rodents. The squirrel family includes tree squirrels, ground squirrels, chipmunks, marmots, flying squirrels, and prairie dogs amongst other rodents.
3 Gerbil A gerbil is a small mammal of the order Rodentia. Once known simply as "desert rats", the gerbil subfamily includes about 110 species of African, Indian, and Asian rodents, including sand rats and jirds, all of which are adapted to arid habitats.

Gerbils are adorable, I have 4 girls, biscuit, fudge, peanut and coconut. They love to chase each other through the tunnels they made and play fight, when they see me they stop what their up to and come sit on the top floor near the door all lined up waiting for treats, when they get a treat each all of them run off to separate corners or hiding places to nibble in peace, once the treats are gone they all come back to the door waiting to come out, It's so cute to have 4 little gerbils each with their own different personalities showing me love in their sweet little way.

4 Chinchilla Chinchillas are two species of crepuscular rodents, slightly larger and more robust than ground squirrels. They are native to the Andes mountains in South America and live in colonies called "herds" at high elevations up to 4,270 m.

Chinchillas remind me of mice or hamsters with bushy tails. I love their cute looks! They make me smile!

Every comment this list gets = one hug for a chinchilla.

5 Guinea Pig The guinea pig, also called the cavy or domestic guinea pig, is a species of rodent belonging to the family Caviidae and the genus Cavia.

Guinea pigs live for a long time, clean, don't smell like poo, poo does not smell like poo, and overall just better than hamsters, gerbals, dogs, cats like every animal and they are very smart. Also you can bring them places because they are big and they wont escape. Like the guinea pig pignic. Also don't come saying to me that other animals are better, like its common sense that guinea pigs are amazing.

Two or three guineas are much cuter than an only lonely. They like to chase and squeak at each other, and make little tunnels through their hay. Other rodents like beavers might be objectively cuter, but guineas are the cutest rodent you can keep in your shack.

6 Mouse A mouse is a small rodent characteristically having a pointed snout, small rounded ears, a body-length scaly tail and a high breeding rate. The best known mouse species is the common house mouse. It is also a popular pet.
7 Chipmunk Chipmunks are small, striped rodents of the family Sciuridae. Chipmunks are found in North America, with the exception of the Siberian chipmunk which is found primarily in Asia.
8 Beaver The beaver is a primarily nocturnal, large, semiaquatic rodent. Castor includes two extant species, the North American beaver and Eurasian beaver. Beavers are known for building dams, canals, and lodges.
9 Rats Rats are various medium-sized, long-tailed rodents of the superfamily Muroidea. "True rats" are members of the genus Rattus, the most important of which to humans are the black rat, Rattus rattus, and the brown rat, Rattus norvegicus.

Rats are super cool and chilled out, they make great little companions.

Rats love to cuddle, and are so darn adorable! They're like mini-dogs!
