    Those are some ears. Maybe they aren’t on the verge of extinction… but they just always hear us coming. Kind of looks like the evil cousin of the sugar glider.

    Mickey Mouse WAS ‘cute and comic in equal measure’ – but the measure was paltry.

  5. Gilbert Wham says:

    Yes, but can it fly with those ears?

    Dr Baillie should consider himself lucky that he hasn’t been sued by Disney for trademark infringement.

    Known as Jerboa on Earth, some might recognize it as the Muad’diB of the planet Dune. (Frank Herbert loosely based the Muad’diB, from which Paul Atreides dakes his Fremen name in the classic book Dune).

    “a bit like the Mickey Mouse of the desert, cute and comic in equal measure”

    right, except that Mickey Mouse wasn’t very cute, and rarely comic. :)

    Wait wait wait.

    If they know almost nothing about them how do they know they are on the verge of extinction?
