This once-in-a-lifetime rodent was captured on camera and reminds us of a cartoon character or something like that. Being native to the parts of Gobi Desert in northwestern China and southern Mongolia, this unique creature is thought to have the biggest ears on our planet comparing to its body size. It has a relatively long tail as well.

Due to its comparatively long back legs, they can effortlessly make high jumps with the help of which the exclusive creatures are able to catch some insects which are a necessary part of their diet. Their bodies, believe it or not, are perfectly designed for surviving in such distant and dry places as their ears help them a lot to release terrible heat. They are usually hiding from the people in the deep sand in tunnels.
