"The Saiga.) On the verge of extinction: Commonly known as "Saiga, Mongolian Saiga" & "Saiga Antelope." Saiga tatarica, (Bovidae) is a very distinctive looking antelope; with a large, proboscis-like nose which hangs down over its mouth.
They may not be HUGE but they are unusual in shape and size: Jerboas are technically desert dwelling rodents who live primarily in Northern Africa and Asia, but let's face it- they might actually be the cutest animals in existence. I LOVE Jerboas!
