    The following animals are wrongly in the Rodents category. They should be moved to Small Mammals.

    Badgers    (weasel family)
    Ferrets (weasel family)
    Opossum (marsupial)
    Skunks (weasel family)

    Additionally, Guinea Pigs should be moved from Small Mammals to Rodents.

    I think guinea pigs are rodents and mammals, but I see what you mean.

    They give birth to live young, and they also have teeth that continually grow.

      Yes. Guinea pigs are rodents and mammals. Rodents are a special kind of mammals so all rodents are mammals but not all mammals are rodents.

      So while the Guinea pig selection isn't in the wrong category, it's not in its most accurate category - and the other selections are just plain wrong and should be moved to Small mammals.

    But they should be under the right subset, IMHO.  I had noticed this before but not got around to doing anything about it....
