What are they? And has anyone had them as a pet? A friend showed them to me and I already have chinchillas, but these guys are supper cute too.

A quick Google search turned up a Taiwanese Youtube user with quite a few videos with exotics, including jerboas. I'm guessing they work at a zoo or some other facility because they also have footage of three red pandas in an indoor setting. The Jerboas they are handling seem pretty tame, and it kinda looks like they might be a breeder. It looks like they interact with at least 3 different kinds of them.

"The specific palearctic ecozone areas they are found in are southernmost Mongolia to the Takla-Makan Desert, Mengxin, Aerijin Mountain, and Qing-Zang Plateau regions of north western China."

They are a endangered and a fairly recent discovery as well. So no they aren't pets.

You can sometimes get regular jerboas but they are still rare.
