Gundi (Ctenodactylus gundi)

Gundis (family Ctenodactylidae) are a group of small, stocky rodents found in Africa. They live in rocky deserts across the northern parts of the continent. The family comprises 4 living genera and 5 species (Speke's Gundi, Felou Gundi, Desert Gundi, North African Gundi and Mzab Gundi), as well as numerous extinct genera and species (McKenna and Bell, 1997). They are in the superfamily Ctenodactyloidea. They first came to the notice of western naturalists in Tripoli in 1774 and were given the name 'gundi mice'.
