Bunny Facts: Amami Rabbit

The Amami rabbit is a small-eared endangered bunny.


Living on the Amami islands in Southern Japan, the Amami rabbit is an ancient species of rabbit that has been endangered because since the 1990s because of deforestation and the introduction of the mongoose, which was brought to the area in the late 1970s to control the population of a poisonous snake.

Japan is making some efforts to save the Amami rabbit, including making it a priority of the Invasive lient Species Act.

You can read a bit more about the Amami rabbit on Wikipedia and on Detour Japan, where I got the above info and image.
