Cane Rats

The family Thyronomyidae consists of two species of cane rats; the greater and the lesser cane rat. Also known as grass cutters, these medium-sized rodents are found throughout sub-Saharan Africa. Thryonids are eaten in some African countries and are considered a pest due to the damage they can inflict on many crops.
