Rodents are a large group of mammals that occur in most parts of the world. They have a single pair of front incisor teeth that grow throughout their lives. Their teeth are covered by solid enamel at the front, with softer dentine behind which get sharpened with use. Slovenia is home to a number of small species of rodents, the biggest of which is the Alpine Marmot, a member of the squirrel family. Many rodents have adapted to living alongside humans, but they often become a nuisance. They are good at finding food, so it comes as no surprise that they cause trouble in food warehouses, our kitchens, and other food-storage areas. They are also attracted to food that can be found in the rubbish we throw away. They may contaminate food with their droppings, and infectious diseases – such as bubonic plague – are transmitted by rat fleas. Mice and rats live successfully in the proximity of man, partly due to the lack of natural predators.
