Bushman Rabbit

Scientific Name: Bunolagus monticularis
Conservation Status: Critically endangered
Natural Location: South Africa

The Bushman Rabbit is an extremely rare species. It is only found in parts of a single province within the country of South Africa. It belongs to the genus Bunolagus and is the only member of it. Over the years its range and numbers have shrunk significantly which has caused it to be listed on the endangered species list.

Their appearance is somewhat unique compared to other rabbits found in the same area. Their hind feet are very large with respect to their overall body size. There is a line of black fur that runs from their mouth around the side of their head. The fur that is on its chest and the bottom part of their head is more of a beige color as opposed to white.
