Madagascar Giant Jumping Rat Adoption
At-a-glance: The Madagascar giant jumping rat is the largest rodent in Madagascar (about the size of a rabbit). Their large rear feet enable them to leap three feet into the air when threatened. Slash-and-burn agriculture, charcoal production, logging, human settlements and an introduced black rat species have all contributed to their loss of native habitat.
Conservation status: Endangered
