Bushy Tailed Jirds
Roughly the same size as a Mongolian Gerbil but a bit longer and thinner in build. Their faces are long and pointed with very prominent whiskers. Their most striking feature is their tail. In a non-dominant animal this is quite thick along most of it's length. The tail is often tipped in white, although the amount may vary from a few sparse hairs to an inch or more. Only in a dominant male is the bushy tail seen in all its glory.
