The U.S. Forest Service recently finished putting up miles of barbed wire fencing in New Mexico — to protect the newly-endangered meadow jumping mouse.

The mouse, which was declared an endangered species by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service just months ago, can jump up to three feet at a time — more than three times its body length. The fencing, enclosing over 200 acres, was installed to protect the rodent’s water sources.
