Caption

Egyptian jerboas foraging in a desert, early 20th-century artwork. Jerboas are nocturnal desert rodents found throughout Northern Africa and Asia. They hop on their hind legs in a similar manner to kangaroos. They mostly eat soft seeds, grasses and sometimes insects. The two species of Egyptian jerboa are the lesser Egyptian jerboa (Jaculus jaculus) and the greater Egyptian jerboa (Jaculus orientalis). Artwork from the 25th volume (first period of 1900) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
