dbpedia-owl:abstract
  • The Gambian pouched rat (Cricetomys gambianus), also known as the African giant pouched rat, is a nocturnal pouched rat of the giant pouched rat genus Cricetomys. It is among the largest muroids in the world, growing up to about 0.9 metres (3 ft) long including their tail which makes up half their length. It is widespread in Sub-Saharan Africa, ranging geographically from Senegal to Kenya and from Angola to Mozambique (although it is absent from much of the DR Congo, where Emin's pouched rat is present) and in altitude from sea level to 2,000 metres (6,600 ft).
  • La rata de Gambia (Cricetomys gambianus) es una especie de roedor miomorfo de la familia Nesomyidae. Se encuentra ampliamente extendida en África, desde la costa occidental, a través de África central, hasta África oriental, y por el sur desde el norte de Sudáfrica hasta el sur de Angola. Animal omnívoro, es una de las especies de rata de mayor tamaño.
  • Le cricétome des savanes (Cricetomys gambianus), appelé localement « gafiya» ou encore « kancóoli » et de manière impropre « rat de Gambie » ou « rat géant », est un grand rongeur subsaharien de la famille des muridés, appartenant au genre Cricetomys. À l'image de l'aulacode, ce gros rongeur fournit une viande très prisée des populations ouest-africaines. L'espèce est en voie de domestication sur le modèle de la domestication du lapin en Europe ou du cochon d'Inde chez les Quechuas et Aymaras. L'élevage de cricétomes s'appelle la cricétomiculture.
  • Il ratto gigante del Gambia o ratto gigante africano (Cricetomys gambianus) è un roditore notturno, simile a un ratto, diffuso in gran parte dell'Africa, dal Senegal al Kenya e dall'Angola al Mozambico. È fra i roditori più grandi del mondo. Il nome scientifico Crycetomis si deve alle tasche guanciali che ricordano quelle dei criceti. Il ratto gigante non è tuttavia un criceto, e neppure un ratto, ma appartiene a una distinta famiglia di roditori muroidi endemica dell'Africa, Nesomyidae.
