It’s What Animal Am I Wednesday!
Let’s hear from this week’s guest.
G’day! Have a guess who I am!
I like to jump or hop around the central Australian desert.
I have very strong front teeth.
My tail is skinny and longer than my body.
I have dark big eyes, big ears, muscular thighs and super long and narrow back feet.
I don’t weigh very much – between 30 and 50 grams, which is about the weight of a very small chicken egg.
During the day, I live in a burrow up to a metre deep with my small family of two to four.
At night we like to search for seeds, green shoots and insects. If there’s no fresh water around we can get by on salty water.
Can you guess who I am?
