Long-eared Jerboa: endangered

Euchoreutes_naso_largeEDGE (Evolutionarily Distinct & Globally Endangered) is campaigning to save this little guy; the long-eared Jerboa.

I know it looks like a mouse with the biggest ears you've ever seen, but the Jerboa is a small jumping rodent with a tufted tail and elongated hind legs.

Now I care about all endangered species - cute or not - but this Jerboa has won my heart. Quick! Book me a place on a protest!
