Spoiler:

Blanked on Girbil.. kept trying to make myself remember what that other type of hamster-thing that liked to climb but I never had as a child was called.. and didn't remember.

Paca + Prarie vole + Springhare + Coypu I was never going to get..

I thought the Kangaroo rat was a jerboa.. and that doesn't look much likea porcupine to me...

Prarie dog I should have got.



It would help if I could spell...

Rodents have teeth that grow their whole lives, rodentia literally means to gnaw.

Nope, marsupials are animals with pouches such as kangaroos

Not sure I have ever heard of burrowing kangaroos or koalas.

Hedgehogs are Eulipotyphlas.

They are a special kind of things, more closely related to shrews or moles.
(Original post by CoolCavy)
Same family as porcupines and whatnot. Rodents have teeth that grow their whole lives, rodentia literally means to gnaw.
Actually porcupines are rodents.
