That's true, but remember "procreating" was not allowed during the cruise.
Think how many offspring of rodents there would have been if not kept in 
..bummer of a rule...if not letting carnivores eat meat wasn't enough.

Another thing also...isn't it risky just having a pair of any 
animal...what if one is infertile.  And after the boat trip just think 
how long the practice of grazing conservation continued (not many plants 
left after a world wide flood) and how long did the carnivores have to
refrain from their usual dietary habits...hmm.

If Dinosaurs were included in the Ark passenger manifest, I am very 
certain they would still "Rule the World" today!  They have large egg 
clutches and fill many of the niches.
