Alphabet Series – “J” is for

For the letter “J” in my unconventional animal alphabet series I found a highly amusing and curious looking animal called the Jeroba and added some jalapenos for snacking on. In my opinion, the Jeroba looks like a hybrid of a rabbit, kangaroo, and mouse! All this in a very small package with their bodies at 5 to 15 cm in length (the tails are an additional 7 to 25 cm). They have disproportionate legs and use these with their tails to move around by jumping! And jump they can – up to 6 to 7 feet in height and 10 feet in length. Their ears can vary in size with various species, but here I have drawn the Long-Eared Jeroba which has exceptional large ears 🙂 BBC has a cool video here that shows a Jerboa in its natural habitat.
