is a rodent
that lives in the rain forest
, roughly equivalent to a rat. It can grow quite large, up to 2' with tail. Living on the forest floor, this solitary
animal eats leaves, fallen fruit and tubers
dug from the ground. It is the most prized game animal of Belize
, and is considered quite the delicacy
in Central America
But, I personally wouldn't order gibnut, delicacy or no.
