We rescued this little fella from a certain death! He was trapped in a pit that was too deep for him to get out of. Looked like he had been in there a while but after some water and a bit of biscuit, he was soon hopping merily!
The closest information i could find on this was a “Kangaroo Rat” which is located in California. This one however was in the Sahara desert in Libya.
