What Animal Am I?

It’s What Animal Am I Wednesday!

Let’s hear from this week’s guest.

Gโ€™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 donโ€™t weigh very much โ€“ 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 thereโ€™s no fresh water around we can get by on salty water.

Can you guess who I am?
