Wonders of the Animal Kingdom #1: The Long-Eared Jerboa


Very little is known about this rodent from Mongolia. Like all jerboas, it has huge hindlegs for jumping, but it is distinguished from other jerboa species by its enormous ears. Check out the video to see it in action.

Moshe - undoubtedly. A more interesting question arises with, say, an echidna, or even a kiwi. But that's a subject for another post.
