“New rodent species discovered in Indonesia” and the scary part is that it is carnivorous water rat. I’m often astounded that we are still finding new species across the world and this just goes to show how small our world is.
On the bottoms of its toes are small, fleshy pads that may help it hold onto the streambed when hunting underwater.

I’m really not lazy but since everyone blames everything else on something else, I might as well think it to be hereditary. I do hate the gym but work is another matter, I love what I do. This study was of course done on rats “Study suggests laziness could be hereditary.”

There are a number of things that can dig up those yards. Out here in the Wild West we can have all sorts of critters digging up the yards. Wild pigs or Javelina use their noses to dig up roots, pocket gophers dig burrows and eat roots under the ground and numerous insects dig holes to bury other insects or arachnids as food for their young. By the way ignoring these holes may lead to bushes and trees dying or by being severely damaged.
