Rodent of Unusual Size

17-year-old Nicco Phillips was driving to school in Milwaukie, Oregon, when he spotted an animal in the road.
"I was coming down the street and he was just in the middle of the road," Phillips said. "I just kept driving and I was like, 'What is that?' It's like a big guinea pig, I guess, which kinda bums me out because I was hoping it was like a kangaroo or something."

The animal was actually a Patagonian cavy, a large rodent native to central and southern Argentina. Link to story. Link to pictures. -via Digg

The kid was perplexed to see a giant rodent in the road. The rodent had a whole different set of reasons to be perplexed, like what the huge rushing metal monster was, and what happened to Patagonia.
