Recently, we've been on a tiny animal kick, featuring the adorable dik-dik's, or how about those insanely cute Japanese dwarf flying squirrels?
Well, we're continuing this cuteness run with another uncommonly known animal that deserves your attention: the long-eared jerboa! The long-eared jerboa is a rare nocturnal rodent that is very mouse-like. However, unlike a mouse, it has long hind legs (much like a kangaroo) and comically (and adorably) long ears. Oh, and it also has a miniature snout that resembles a pig.
Be honest, have you ever seen a cuter mouse/rabbit/kangaroo/piglet mix? We didn't think so!
