1. If you've ever

seen these up close, they are really cute and cool. World's largest guinea pig.

7. I have seen these giant rodents at the zoo in my hometown.

They are really cute! Huge bodies and tiny little feet. They seem very laid back.

5. There's a woman

in Texas who keeps one as a pet.

Apparently, they are tame and loving and extremely loyal to their owner. She says they can be territorial and bite visitors they don't like, but that's dogs, too.

She also says he's great out in public and people love to pet him.

*Edited to add her website is still up. It's called gianthamster.com
