The jerboa, a little desert rodent, is bipedal, hopping around on impressive hindlimbs and relying on its long, tufted tail for balance. There are dozens of species across steppes and deserts in eastern Europe, Asia, and northern Africa, where they use their small forearms to gather food and burrow. Their legs and tail are used for another impressive feat: spook a jerboa, and it can hop up to 10 feet in the air, a height that’s even more impressive considering that most species are only 2 to 6 inches long, minus tail.
