This prehistoric marvel is closely related to rodents except they are big and scary looking. Luckily, they went extinct around 2 million years ago.

Josephoartigasia were rodent species weighing 1 ton that frolicked around in modern-day Uruguay.

They could have been herbivorous, but nobody wants to encounter or provoke a rodent that big for fun!
