Submission + - Long-Eared Jerboa Caught On Film for the First Tim (bbc.co.uk)

MQDuck writes: "Footage of the long-eared jerboa, rodents who call the deserts of China and Mongolia their homes, has been captured for the first time. TFA:
"These creatures hop just like a kangaroo; it is amazing to watch. Little hairs on their feet, almost like snow shoes, allow them to jump along the sand," [Dr Baillie] explained.
"And in terms of mammals, they have one of the biggest ear-to-body ratios out there.""
