pet owners who find they very much enjoy their pet rodents
and find that most rodents are fairly easy to take care of.

known as rodents, include

There are squirrel like rodents and there are mouse like rodents.

In the wild, rodents are found world wide with the exception of
Antarctica and in almost every habitat.
