A rodent of *truly* unusual size

The BBC [reports](http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/3120950.stm “BBC NEWS Science/Nature Giant rodent astonishes science”) an… inconceivably large rodent, aka “Guinea-zilla”.

They “… could have run in huge packs,” and weighed 700kg.

700kg?!? I’m going to have nightmares tonight…
