How far can a jerboa jump?

How far can a jerboa jump?Jerboas are small rodents that look rather like miniature kangaroos. Their back legs are four times as long their front legs, and the tail is longer than the head and body put together. Like kangaroos they travel by leaps and bounds and at top speed can over 10 feet in a single jump. The tail trails behind and helps to balance the jerboa as it shoots through the air, often faster than the eye can see. Jerboas live in desert areas of Asia and Africa and escape the fierce heat of the day by hiding in cool underground burrows.
