What? What? Huh? I can’t hear you? What did you say? What?
A scientific expedition in the Gobi desert has yielded the holy grail for hamster lovers, film of the long-eared jerboa, a creature that has heretofore never been captured by a camera. Dr. Jonathan Baillie of the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) tracked down the big eared desert friends, filmed them and even captured them in “pitfall traps” so that he could study them more closely. Dr. Baillie’s research has discovered that these nocturnal creatures spend their days in burrows and eat insects. Wow! Didn’t see that coming!

“These amazing, remarkable creatures are on the verge of extinction and we know almost nothing about them,” said Dr. Baillie in this article on bbc.com. Due to their highly endangered status, the Chinese black market has immediately designated crushed jerboa bones to be the “must have penis enlargement powder” for this holiday season.
