Have you ever heard of a rat that is also an acrobat? Neither had we! Until today when we stumbled upon this silly news story courtesy of BBC News. "A rat with rather impressive acrobatic skills has been filmed scaling a washing line to get to some bird feeders. Melissa Paterson, 26, spotted the tightrope-walking rodent in her Norfolk garden early one July morning."

"She said it had been in and out of her garden for a while working out how to reach the feeders. They were moved to the clothes line after it successfully scaled a bird feeder pole. 'I've never seen one scale a washing line like it's walking a tightrope,' Ms Paterson said." We are seriously impressed with this agile rat's efforts to secure some extra sustenance.

Long-Eared Jerboa Is The Cutest Rodent With Rabbit-Like Ears

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!
