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."

Awwww...though I kind of felt sorry for it. It's like a mouse got cut in half and stuck on top of some weird chicken feet. But it's still cute! I want one!

How could that possibly be creepy? There are a lot of things in our world that are actually scary, but this is definitely not one of them. It's a tiny fuzzball, not a predator lol

Totally cute. Jerboa's (specifically the long-eared jerboa) are in my Top 5 cutest animals, along with the bower bird, the kitten, the seahorse, and the newly added marmoset.
