Extraordinary Animal : Long-eared Jerboa


Long Eared Jerboa

The Long-eared Jerboa (Euchoreutes naso), is a nocturnal mouse-like rodent with a long tail, long hind legs for juming, and exceptionally large ears. It is distinct enough that authorities consider it to be the only member of both its genus, Euchoreutes, and subfamily,Euchoreutinae. It has been reported in China and in ten localities in desert habitats of Trans Altai Govi Desert and the Gobi Desertin Mongolia. A large part of the species is believed to occur in Mongolia within protected areas. Very little is known about the species.

They are presumed to be principally nocturnal, just like their relatives. Specific manners of communicating with each other have not been established, still, it is not farfetched to assume that just like their cousins, they engage in dust bathing, which can be considered a kind of chemical communication. These jerboas’ hearing insinuates that they utilize vibrations to talk to one another. Little owls are considered as one of the most common predators of these jerboas.

They are capable of eating flying insects. The long-eared Jerboa utilizes sounds to pinpoint the location of the prey. After which, they do a very quick leap to catch the flying prey.
