Pygmy Jerboa: One of the Cutest Weird Animals Ever!

If you've never heard of a pygmy jerboa before (Cute hadn't until now), then you've been missing out on some major cuteness.

He's a strange little fellow that is part of the rodent family, a cousin of hopping mice -- but with feet like remind me of a bird. I did a little research, and they typically live in the deserts of Asia and North Africa.

Bummer, I was hoping to run into one around here!

More cute pygmy animals, please.


  1. That is the strangest animal we have ever seen!! Kinda cute in a weird way!!
    Your FL furiends,

  2. wow what a strange little animal! still cute though it looks like a wind up toy! very bizarre. a lot of them hopping everywhere might freak me out though.

  3. They are sooooo cute! At first I wasn't sure what to think it almost looked scary. Now I won't one and my mom already said yes now to convince my dad.........


You know what would be really cute? If you left a comment... :)
