Malagasy giant rat

The Malagasy giant rat (Hypogeomys Antimena) is a nesomyid rodent found only in the Menabe region in Madagascar. They can leap 3 ft high in the air and are sometimes called giant jumping rats. The other species is Hypogeomys Australis, which is known from subfossil remains a few thousand years old. The 1st appearance of these endangered rats from All Hail King Julien was the 2nd episode of Karl: One More Cup.
