Meet A Hopping Pygmy Jerboa

With all of the nature footage available on the Internet, it's pretty easy to start thinking that you've seen just about everything out there. Well, prepare to be pleasantly surprised. This little guy is called a Baluchistan pygmy jerboa, a tiny desert rodent that can typically be found in Northern Africa, China and Manchuria.

This little creature, being a desert animal, doesn't usually drink water, instead getting most of its hydration from the food it consumes. While this creature looks absolutely adorable, it is actually quite agile. Jerboas are known to be excellent jumpers, able to leap several feet in one hop.
