Jerboa is a SandWing that appeared in Darkstalker's throne room, when he cast a spell that summoned all the animus dragons in Pyrrhia to him. She lives in a hut on a beach, near the border where the Kingdom of Sand meets the Ice Kingdom. Peril mentions that the borders are known as the wasteland between the IceWing and SandWing kingdom. In The Hidden Kingdom, the dragonets of destiny and Jambu fly past it.
She makes another mysterious appearance in the epilogue of Darkness Of Dragons when she led Moon and Qibli into to her home to meet her. She then confirms to the two dragonets that she is the daughter of the first Jerboa, and that she is immortal. Jerboa shows them an injured dragon, who she has been taking care of, Luna, a SilkWing from Pantala.
Jerboa appears in the epilogue when she finds Luna, lost and severly injured on one of the Kingdom of Sands beaches. Jerboa says that it is lucky Luna speaks Dragon. She introduces herself to Luna, and Luna does the same. Jerboa brings the lost SilkWing to her home and offers her fish stew, but Luna declines saying that she doesn't eat meat. She welcomes Moon and Qibli when they arrive and brings them to Luna (as seen in the Darkness of Dragons epilogue)
Her hut is mentioned twice in the prologue. She is also mentioned when Tsunami asks if she can enchant something for Luna to get back to Pantala, but Moon says that she is an animus that doesn't touch her magic.
She is quiet and thoughtful, like Moonwatcher.
