It doesn't look healthy.

I thought "Oh how cute!" until it opened its mouth. Ye gods!

The low fat mayo in my turkey sandwich was about 5 grams.

Sensei Can You See: I thought "Oh how cute!" until it opened its mouth. Ye gods!


Unless its shoulder joints are connected to its jaw somehow, I think what you're mistaking for a giant gaping maw is actually just matted chest fur.  I viewed it a few times and the mouth seems to be of a normal size for such an animal.

It's a cat toy!

How can something so tiny look so mean?
Also, we now know the inspiration of pokemons and of big eyes on Japanese cartoons.

ShawnDoc: It doesn't look healthy.


No, it doesn't.

It also looks like it's all head and feet.

This exact clip of that exact animal popped up on Fark years ago....

I had a hard time picking my nose today, because I clipped my fingernails and no one in the elevator offered to help.

HA HA! Subby is terrified by a tiny rodent weighing only 3.2 grams.
 
2014-01-12 9:38:44 PM  
I thought this was a much better video of the things...

It's a head with legs!
 
2014-01-12 10:28:20 PM  
I thought it was kind of cute.
 
2014-01-12 10:31:18 PM  

TheHopeDiamond: It's a head with legs!


It's a head with chicken legs.  My first impression was that it was some sort of Warner Brothers cartoon character, possibly after a close encounter with a mallet.

Poor little sod. It doesn't look healthy.

DrBenway: HA HA! Subby is terrified by a tiny rodent weighing only 3.2 grams.


yeah.....kind of this. maybe i have too many cats, but my first thought was how short an amount of time that thing would live if it were here.

Looks like someone grafted the head of Lanny McDonald onto a kangaroo rat.
 
2014-01-13 12:03:32 AM  
It's a live action Doctor Seuss character.
 
2014-01-13 12:34:21 AM  
I will name him George, and I will hug him, and pet him, and squeeze him
 
2014-01-13 12:34:22 AM  
That animal only exists as something for other animals to munch on between meals.
 
2014-01-13 1:17:56 AM  
2009? So it's dead, yes?

Proof-of-concept engineering model built during the early years of the mouse program.

I wouldn't squeeze him too hard.

Well to be fair, it's clearly a supervillain. I mean, it spent almost the entire video twirling its mustache.

zerkalo: 2009? So it's dead, yes?


Hard to say but probably.  I was curious about the little guy so I read the Wiki article.  Says they live up to 6 years.  I'd assume that the pygmy variety has a shorter lifespan.  Predators are the usual suspects, foxes, owls, gere and snakes.

Well, you know, viruses can be deadly and you can't even see them without an electron microscope. It's not so much a question of size as it is a question of whether this animal will die if you so much as breath on it. Kinda looks like it might.

Looks like a real-life Qbert.

What is the purpose of its existence? It's a head on huge feet. Was God high when he created it?

The purpose of its existence is to continue its existence, and preferably fark another pygmy jerboa to pass on its genes.

That is exactly what I was trying to think of lol

Yeah, headline is "OH GOD THE HORROR" and video is "Awwww, it's so cute, it's...  like a tiny little head with legs!"
 
2014-01-13 2:15:20 PM  
It's adorable,I want one.

Mobutu: Yeah, headline is "OH GOD THE HORROR" and video is "Awwww, it's so cute, it's...  like a tiny little head with legs!"


Exactly. The body accounts for so little of the animal that it looks exactly like a big (relatively)-eyed head on legs. Too cute. My three cats wouldn't even bother to eat it after they killed it.
