It is one of the many names given by a small American rodent who lives from Mexico to Argentina. The term cherenga is most commonly used in Costa Rica. Virtually every country and region gets a different name. It has about 50 centimeters of elevation and a weight of about 3 kilograms. Its scientific name is Dasyprocta punctata . In Colombia we call it picure , guatín or ñeque . In other regions they call it jochi, carma, guaqueque or añuje .
