"Gnaw" in context

The verb "gnaw" can be used to describe the persistent biting, chewing or nibbling action of an animal or a person on something, often resulting in it being reduced in size by small amounts. The action is most closely associated with the action of rodents, who have the ability to bite through various materials such as wood and plastic due to their powerful jaws and sharp teeth. In some cases, this destructive behaviour is observed in domesticated animals such as rabbits and guinea pigs, which may require the pets to be provided with suitable objects to chew on as an alternative to household objects which may be destroyed as a result of the behaviour.
