My sister has javalinas out by her, too. They eat all her landscaping.

Javelina are no more rodents than rabbits are. In other words they aren't.

Pigs are in the family Suidae, and javelina are Tayassuidae, rodents are Rodentia and rabbits/hares are Leporidae. or something like that, but they are not even related to rodents.

You might be thinking of the capybara which is the world's largest known rodent.

Javelina are members of the peccary family. There are actually three species of peccaries that range from the Southwestern United States south to central South America. The only species found in the United States is the collared peccary, or javelina.

Yeah, still not a rodent though. You can tell by the feet and the teeth. Piggish all the way.

Alarm is set for 02:00 but I usually wake around 01:00.
Get up, make lunch, go out for breakfast and coffee, then drive 30 minutes to work.
