Fossil of giant guinea pig found

In the too weird to be true category comes a story from the Taipei Times that talks about an amazing new discovery! "...a rodent that was as big as a cow and weighed [in at] 700kg"

Japanese screen writers I'm sure are now going to start working on a "Godzilla vs Mega GP" script!

Hmm I wonder how big of a catapult I would need to make a guinea pig that large fly through they air? (sorry old MUSH humor)
