In the mosts deserts, rodent species are represented numerously, most of them being granivorous. Several studies deal with the question, what the mechanisms of coexistence in such rodent communities are. In this paper the hypothesis is tested, whether the two locomotion types - quadrupedal running and bipedal saltation - my be responsible for the syntopic occurence of the two granivorous desert rodent species Jaculus jaculus (Linnaeus, 1758) and Gerbillus gerbillus Oliver, 1801.
