A Long-Eared Jerboa is a small animal who's habitat is in Asia. Basically, they are similar to a kangaroo rat and can jump up to three feet! They live in deserts and dry grasslands and they're primarily nocturnal creatures
Long-Eared Jerboas like most rodents have very large front teeth that never stop growing – this enables them to gnaw at hard seeds and plants which allows the animal to survive on little food. The animal lives for about ten years (which is old for such a small animal). Their range extends from eastern Kazakhstan through Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and China.
The Long-Eared Jerboa population has been decreasing because of loss of their habitat; many people think the same will happen as with the Saiga antelope (which is said to be extinct in the wild).
