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.
