Jerboa - Hopping Desert Rodent - Cute But Deadly

I was amazed when I first looked at this hopping rodent animal - Jerboa - Hopping Desert Rodent - Cute But Deadly.

These cute little creatures look alien. They are called Jerboa. They are like mini kangaroos, as they have many similarities. Both have long hind legs, very short forelegs and long tails. Jerboas move around their environment the same way a kangaroo does, which is by hopping, they also use their tail to balance when hopping, and as a prop when sitting upright.

They are cute, but deadly. These animals could carry certain dangerous viruses.
