The Bushy-Tailed Jird

THE BUSHY-TAILED JIRD
Scientific name - Sekeetamys calurus

The Bushy-Tailed Jird is native to Eastern Egypt, Israel and Saudi Arabia. They live in an arid, rocky environment with solid soil. They burrow under boulders instead of underground. Since their natural environment is so rocky, they are excellent climbers, so watch out when you let them out.
The Bushy-Tailed Jird is related to the common Mongolian Gerbil. The Bushy-Tailed Jird is slightly larger than the Mongolian gerbil and it also has a longer tail that can become very bushy.
