Eyes like a mouse´s, legs like a kangaroo´s, tail like a lion´s – and jumping like a flea. Such animal does not exist, you say? But it does! It is called jerboa, and lives in the African desert. The protagonists of this series, the enterprising jerboa siblings Tom and Tina, set out on an expedition into wild nature every day, taking care to steer clear of the “awful marabou”, as their Dad advises them. Marabou is a large African stork, and a traditional, sworn enemy of the jerboas. But what Tom and Tina´s father does not know is that the marabou that they have befriended is still tiny, and the only “awful” thing about it is its clumsiness. And if they did not keep an eye on it, it would certainly come to some harm. And so Tom, Tina and the little marabou meet secretly and play together, because – similar to children – they choose their friends not depending on which species they belong to, but according to their character. In the individual episodes we will also make our acquaintance of other exotic animals, for instance the Indian flying fox, tortoise, monkey, snake and parrot.
