This may sound like an odd request, but I'm trying to compile a list of rodents often kept as pets. So far I have:

Acacia Rats
African Pygmy Dormice
Chinchillas
Chipmunks
Degus
Dormice
Dumbo Rats
Duprasi
Fancy Mice
Gambian Pouched Rats
Gerbils
Guinea Pigs
Hamsters
Harvest Mice
Jerboas
Jirds
Mouse-like Hamsters
Prairie Dogs
Rats
Spiny Mice
Squirrels
Steppe Lemmings

What am I missing? :)

Hmm, define "often" :lol:.

The only species I've kept that's not on your list are Pygmy Mice. I haven't personally kept Zebra Mice but that's another one :).

Thanks, I'll add those to the list! :)

Ha I guess by often, I mean a pet that at least a good handful of people own. The kind of animal that, if you said you owned, everyone wouldn't react by saying "I DIDN'T KNOW YOU COULD HAVE _____ AS A PET?!" kind of thing :)
