This post reminded me of the bunny I had as a little girl. It was completely black, and oh how I loved it. Thanks for sharing this piece of knowledge, and thanks for your kind comment on my blog.

I must confess I needed to look for "rodent" in an English dictionary. I haven´t heard the word before in your language. Very interesting.Kisses:)

I have never heard of a rabbit called a rodent! Family pets and such, but never a rodent.
