The Pygmy Jerboa: Mouse, Duck, or Both?

Last night, Boy Jessie sent me a video featuring the Pygmy jerboa.


After discovering that jerboas are desert-dwelling rodents, much like our Syrian hamsters we utilize for experimentation, I would like to comment: there is no way I will be performing a microdialysis stereotaxic surgery or manual collection on these. I can only imagine the awkwardness of placing them into the ear bars, and given their bipedalism, I anticipate many attempted escapes during a manual collection.
