The Kid Should See This

Jump In Jerboas – Science Friday

Watch more with these video collections:

“A furry little rodent version of a Tyrannosaurus Rex,” the jerboa has tiny forelimbs, a “noodle” tail that helps with them with balance, long legs and really long feet, with toes that support their speedy hops.

When scientists like Dr. Kim Cooper study this creature’s hindlimbs in the lab, they can discover clues that tell us more about the evolution of all bones, including human ones. From Science Friday: Jump In Jerboas.

Next, see a jerboa in action: Desert Fox Hunts A Lesser Jerboa.
