    19 Ways Jerboas Will Instantly Win Your Heart

    Tiny, mighty, and insanely cute — what's not to love?

    1. OMG, is this not the most adorable creature you've ever seen?

    2. If you've ever felt self-conscious about having big feet, just remind yourself that the jerboa does too.

    3. Same goes for short people. Jerboas are proof that being tiny is amazing.

    4. These cuties stay mobile by jumping everywhere they go.

    Jerboas belong to the Dipodinae, aka "jumping rodent" family.

    5. Oh, in case you thought they couldn't be any cuter, there are pygmies as well.

    6. Just like you, these little guys love to stay up late.

    Jerboas are nocturnal, and they stay underground for most of the day.

    7. They are quite possibly the cutest runners of all time.

    Their long legs help them run up to 16 mph.

    8. Be still my heart.

    9. Their big ears actually help keep them cool.

    But they also use their ears to track down insects.

    10. Don't let their size fool you — these little babes are mighty.

    11. Try not to giggle — I dare you.

    12. You've got to be kidding me. They're too precious.

    13. Did you know they can live up to six years?

    14. They are the sweetest babies ever to have existed.

    Jerboas breed two to three times each year, which means the cuteness never stops.

    15. In case you were wondering, their tails are usually longer than their whole bodies.

    16. They tend to be homebodies.

    Jerboas value their alone time, and they generally isolate themselves from others.

    17. This is what snuggle heaven looks like.

    18. His tail is in his food. I literally cannot handle myself.

    19. Need all of the jerboas. Now.
