  Hopping mouse
The Fawn Hopping Mouse (Notomys cervinus) is found on the sparsely vegetated arid gibber plains[?] and claypans of the Lake Eyre Basin[?].
Small at around 30 to 50 g, and light in colour, it is gregarious and feeds at night on seeds, insects, and green shoots, not needing to drink water.
The Darling Downs Hopping Mouse (Notomys mordax) is almost certainly extinct and is known only from a single skull collected somewhere on the Darling Downs[?] of south-east Queensland in the 1840s, apparently from a creature similar to Mitchell's Hopping-mouse.

The Long-tailed Hopping Mouse (Notomys longicaudatus)is an extinct species, which was widespread in the drier regions of southern and central Australia.
Only a handful of specimens were collected and the last record dates from 1901, although skull fragments were found in an owl pellet in 1977.
The extinct Short-tailed Hopping Mouse (Notomys amplus) was the largest species at around 100 g.

Notomys macrotis is commonly known (its common name) as the Big-Eared Hopping-Mouse in English.
Notomys macrotis is classified as extinct by the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, the world's most comprehensive inventory of the global conservation status of plant and animal species maintained by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources.

 Dusky Hopping Mouse
The Dusky Hopping Mouse (Notomys fuscus) is an Australian native rodent specialised for the deep desert.
Like all hopping mice it has strong front teeth, a long tail, dark eyes, big ears, well-developed haunches and very long, narrow hind feet.
The reasons for the decline of the Dusky Hopping Mouse are not fully understood, but are assumed to be competition for food with introduced species, particularly cattle and rabbits, and predation by introduced cats and foxes[?].

 Notomys alexis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
When the animals are in a hurry they will only use their hind legs and can make huge jumps.
Notomys alexis seems to be a bit susceptible to respiratory problems; they can develop pneumonia or asthmatic diseases.
To prevent this you have to avoid infections; don't pick the animals up too often, clean their cage in time and try to avoid stress.

The rate of defecation may rise as much as tenfold during arousal and if the animal is handled or placed in strange surrounds.
Notomys alexis micturates from a crouch posture with the tibias almost horizontal, the tail raised and the ventrum close to the substrate.
Turn-and-push: The nose and forehead are used as a shovel to lift and push substrate along the tunnel, and to pack it firmly against the walls and roof.

Nevertheless, considerable interspecific variability in testis mass as a percentage of body mass is evident for the different species, with the smallest relative size of testes in the Australian rodents being present in most Notomys and several Pseudomys species.
Notomys and Pseudomys with small testes tend to have a lower relative volume of seminiferous tubules to the total testicular mass than species with relatively large testes.
It is thus suggested that, in Notomys at least, the relatively small testes may relate to the other divergent features of the reproductive tract one of the consequences of which may be a highly efficient sperm-transport system.

The genera Notomys, Mastacomys and Pseudomys formed a monophyletic group identified by previous studies.
Mastacomys was placed within Pseudomys, with which it was recently synonymised, and Notomys was not clearly separable from Pseudomys.
Both Notomys and Mastacomys should be recognised as genera.

AMONG Australia's famous marsupials live many unsung native rodents.
Arguably the most bizarre are the hopping mice, members of the genus Notomys.
Dwelling largely in the arid zone, these animals have big eyes and ears, a long brush-tipped tail and extremely long hind limbs and feet that enable them to hop rapidly across the open sand.
