These cute little alien looking creatures are called Jerboa. They are like mini kangaroos, as they have many similarities.
Both have long hind legs, very short forelegs and long tails.
Jerboas move around their environment the same way a kangaroo does, which is by hopping, they also use their tail to balance when hopping, and as a prop when sitting upright.
They are cute, but deadly, watch the video to find out why.
