Pygmy Jerboa

Cute or Creepy? The Pygmy Jerboa

The Pygmy Jerboa (no, that is not a Pixar creation) is a small jumping desert rodent found in Asia and northern Africa. It looks like a cross between a chick and a mouse, has a long tufted tail and, as you can see, long hind legs. My favorite detail about this weird little critter? Its fur is "long, soft and silky."
