This Ain’t No Sci-Fi Movie Creature…This is a Real Animal

This really is a real animal, known as the Jerboa, that comes from Africa. It looks like a mouse, and is in fact a rodent, but with two legs. This animal is quite different from all others, in that it DOESN’T drink water. Strange, huh?

Instead, the Jerboa gets its liquids from whatever food it eats. It’s also got some kind of abilities that allow it to jump high to protect itself from snakes.

 

 

 
Think you’d like one as a pet? Forget it. African rodents have been banned because of a monkey pox outbreak, so just watch it safely from your computer.
