Bunday Interloper

Lope! Lope! Lope! Bunday is relative. Just not my relatives.

Cute kanga-bun-mouse jerboa, the hopping desert rodent with excellent hearing (noduh) of North Africa and Asia, via Ridiculously Photogenic Rodents on Mashable.

    Looked up redonk in the dictionary. Found this picture.

  2. a mini jackalope.

  3. Wait wait wait… It’s NOT related to a bun!? Well I’ll be…

  4. OMG I was just daydreaming of jerboas earlier this week–hadn’t seen a picture of one for ages. CO, you read my mind.

  5. This and the platypus were created from the parts left over on the workshop floor after God finished creating the rest of the world.

  6. Oh my god it is so bizzare and extraterrestrial

  7. I’ve never seen one of these before and actually said “Oh my goodness!” out loud, because, well…oh my goodness!

  8. Awww, what a little cutie pie. 🙂

  9. Way to catch that rodents are *not* to lagomorphs!

  10. I know it *has* little forearms but WHERE ARE THEY?

  11. Tony James says:

    Is it possible that he’s a distant relative of ManxMouse?

  12. Smartypants says:

    He’s holding food to his mouth – if you look closely you can see his little hands under his chin.

  13. It’s a Muad’Dib.

  14. Yes, I sighed with delight. Thank you. 🙂

  15. Flufferbutt says:

    Indeed yes!!!

  16. Beady Eye Factor to the BUZZILLIANTH degree!! 😉

  17. “Ridiculously Photogenic Rodents” indeed! Follow the link and see even more
    squee-able rodents (photos of which we have seen here recently, plus others that will hopefully be posted here ASAP!)
    (Btw, not all jerboas have those redonk earsies!)

  18. I need a dictionary like that! 🙂

  19. Scroll down to rows 6 and 11 on the left hand side–it’s worth it!

  20. Looks like something that would happen when a bun and degu get together

  21. Wouldn’t he have no tail if he were a ManxMouse, TJ? just sayin’.

    My initial thought was “ooo—eeerr”, followed by “Why?” I can see the reason for the ears, but why the long, feathered tail-io?

  22. Made from leftover pieces of felt, fluff and pipe cleaners, no?

    Cuteness personified. 🙂

  23. Suddenly I am hungry for something with spice on it. Not sure why……:D

    Congrats to the Dune references! With ears like that, he’s got great heat removers too.
