Is a mouse a cow?

I hope that with my last post I convinced some of you that rodents and humans are different. In fact, believe it or not, most species are different. To push that concept a little further, I quote here the title of the opening article in the most recent issue of Nature,

“A mouse is NOT a cow!” (capitals and punctuation mine)

I’ll be sure to keep you posted on the next mammals discovered not to be mice. In the meantime though, I think a more pertinent question is this: Is a mouse an ear?

For more.
