Caption

Desert kangaroo rat (Dipodomys deserti) standing in a sandy area. This rodent moves just like a real kangaroo, using its bushy tail for balance and steering. It lives in the desert scrub of the Mojave and Sonoran deserts, the most arid desert regions in the United States. The desert kangaroo rat mostly eats seeds, leaves and insects and has adapted to desert life by getting water from the food it eats. It is also able to store food in a cheek pouch.
