Muscaliet

Region of origin: France

Appearing in the translated bestiary of Pierre de Beauvais, the muscaliet is a rodent said to generate an immense amount of body heat. It will build its nest burrowed underneath a tree it gathers fruit from and the heat it gives off as it lives there is enough to dry out and eventually kill the tree.
