The Spinifex Hopping Mouse are nocturnal animals that make long, underground tunnels.

The Hopping Mouse ancestors travelled from Kunajarrayi to Jila (Chilla Well) and then went underground to Junti. At Junti, they looked around for food and after hunting, then they went underground again and travelled south-west to Junginyi. Later they returned to Junti.

This story is part of higher initiation ceremonies for Japaljarri and Jungarrayi men. In Warlpiri paintings traditional iconography is used to represent the Jukurrpa and other elements. Often, concentric circles are used to represent ‘mulju’ (water soakages), and wavy lines portray the mouse's tail tracks. Larger roundels can be used to depict the underground home of the ancestral spirit, and arc-shaped figures represent men lying down in the warmth of the late afternoon after hunting.
