>Nidoran appears to be based on a porcupine, rabbit, mouse, or a hamster, as seen by their aggressive nature towards one another.
>Nidoqueen shares traits of rhinoceroses, gorillas, rabbits and porcupines. The coverings on its chest and its lower abdomen collectively resemble a two-piece bikini worn by human females.
>Nidoking shares traits of rhinoceroses, gorillas, rabbits and porcupines.

Basically a mix of a few small creatures, then some parts ressembling rhinos and gorillas.

I wouldnt call them any one specific animal but more of a Hybrid of a few to make an Apex Predator like Pokemon.

The Nidoran line is based on a combination of a porcupine, rabbit, mouse, and a hamster. Hope this helps!
