Noun[edit]

gundi (plural gundis)

  1. Any of the several rodents of the family Ctenodactylidae.
    • 1968, Gary Laval Ranck, The Rodents of Libya: Taxonomy, Ecology and Zoogeographical Relationships, page 258,
      The fact that specimens were collected and observed only in the higher portions of the gebel near Rumia is a direct result of my efforts having been concentrated there and does not indicate that gundis are most abundant at higher elevations or that they do not occur at lower elevations.
    • 1999, Gundi, entry in Michael A. Mares (editor), Encyclopedia of Deserts, page 258,
      Gundis occur over most of North Africa, including the western Sahara Desert and Sahel west of 15° east longitude, from Mauritania to Libya and Chad.
    • 2001, Gundis, entry in Peter Haggett (editor), Encyclopedia of World Geography, Volume 24, page 2220,
      Small balls of soft fur scampering up vertical rock faces, trilling and chirping like flocks of birds: these are the gundis, a curious family of rock-dwelling rodents that are found only in northern Africa. Four species of gundi live in the Sahara, one in the Horn of Africa.
