Back to  What is the smallest Rodent

The smallest Rodent is a probably the Harvest Mouse. Here is a description of one.

The tiny harvest mice climb around stalks and tiny branches, feeding on grass, seeds, and insects. The American harvest mouse is found in areas of short grass from southern Canada to northern South America. It is pale brown to blackish with whitish or buff underparts. The Old World harvest mouse is found among tall grasses and other vegetation throughout Europe and Asia. It is bright yellowish or reddish brown with white underparts.

Although the Naked Mole Rat is about the same size. Here is something about that rodent that we got from the Philadelphia Zoo.
