Volcano Rabbit

Scientific Name: Romerolagus diazi
Conservation Status: Endangered
Natural Location: Mexico

The Volcano rabbit makes its home in the mountains of Mexico. It likes to live in areas of dense grass and pine forests. They never live in groups of more than 4 other rabbits and like most rabbits live in burrows that they dig in the ground. Their paws have been adapted to walk on the rocky surface of the mountains that they live on. Due to habitat destruction in recent years they have been pushed further and further into the mountains causing a decline in their numbers.

It is the smallest rabbit next to the Pygmy rabbit weighing slightly more than half a kilogram. The Volcano Rabbit makes its diet from grass and bark.
