Today’s Amusing Wikipedia entry of the day is Mountain Beaver, from which I quote:
The Mountain Beaver (Aplodontia ruf) is a primitive rodent unrelated to beavers and not usually found in mountainous areas.
Don't ever say taxonomy is dull.

I heard the "Mountain Beaver" has a matted and seldom cleaned coat of fur and produced a very distinctive smell. But that's all just conjecture.
