Rough-Legged Jerboa

About Rough-Legged Jerboa

Jerboas bounce along on their back legs instead of going on all fours. Their back legs are so powerful that jerboas can jump about 10 feet (3 m) in a single jump. Jerboas live in dry areas in Asia and Africa. They live in burrows, and come out after dark. During the day they seal off their burrows to keep cool.
