There are about 1500 species of rodent living in the world; and within the classification of rodent, there can be a vast difference in size, appearance, and behavior. While beavers and rats are both considered rodents, beavers are much larger creatures that live primarily in the water. You're not likely to call a pest control company to get rid of a beaver infestation in your home. In the same why that there are differences between beavers and rats, there are differences between rats and mice. Here are a few ways you can distinguish these two rodents from each other.

Droppings
