Jaculus Orientalis, Strange Little Creatures

I have never seen creatures like these before, err maybe except mice, but these look like kangaroos to, I find it strange after watching many a wild life documentary, I still come across animals I have never seen before. Not that strange, I forget a lot of stuff.

Here's the description that came with the video:

"The species is found in the deserts of north Africa and Arabia. It is a nocturnal rodent which may move considerable distances each night in search of food. Its diet includes roots, sprouts, seeds, grains and cultivated vegetables. Jaculus orientalis is a sociable species, often being found in small groups. The breeding season extends over 5-6 months, beginning in February. Gestation has been recorded at approximately 40 days with a mean litter size of three."

Probably have seen these creatures before, but because of the setting it doesn't get my brain clicking.
