The Tamarisk Gerbil (Meriones tamariscinus) lives in bushy and grass covered semi-deserts from the shores of the Caspian Sea across central Asia to Northwestern China.
This hand coloured engraving comes from A Genuine and Universal System of Natural History by Sir Charles Linnaeus, the founder of the modern system of taxanomic classification, completed after his death by J. Frid Gmelin and published in London in 1804. Click on it for a larger version which also shows a Dormouse, two Jerboas, a Striped Mouse and an Economic Mouse.
More information will be added about the Tamarisk Gerbil soon.
