Disney's cartoon character Mickey Mouse is so iconic that the famous ears are instantly recognizable in many products and have even been the inspiration for the fashion industry.

The squeaky little mouse is also immortalized as the point-and-click tool so necessary in today's computing world. Just like real animal species, the computer mouse comes in many forms. They could be ultra-expensive or ultra-geeky in design. And lest we forget, there is also the humble lab mouse who helps scientists solve mysteries and discover new medical or scientific innovations.

Smell a rat? Yes! Included in this cluster are the other rodent cousins like hamsters, rats, guinea pigs, and the capybara. Some of the animals are talented surfers and even bomb-sniffers!
