The long-eared jerboa is a small desert mouse with a long tail, enormous ears, and kangaroo-like legs. It lives in China's Gobi Desert, and although little-known, is endangered.
The first-known live footage of this animal is available at this link, and was recently featured on CNN. The long-eared jerboa is one of the mammals in the EDGE project, which is concerned with the lack of conservation effort for biologically unique mammals on the verge of extinction.
