Living Fossil Rabbit- The Amami

Assalamualaikum wbt

 

The Amami Rabbit, also known as the Ryukyu Rabbit, is found only on the Japanese islands. They live on two Japanese islands which is Amami Oshima and Tokuna Shimam, in the Ryukyu Archipelago south of the island of Kyushu.

The Amami Rabbit is a living remnant of ancient rabbits and is often referred to as a "living fossil". The Amami Rabbit is so unique and has been isolated from other rabbit species for so long, that they are scarcely even related. The Amami Rabbit has dark fur, short rounded ears, and no tail. It is nocturnal and dwells deep in forests. 
The Amami Rabbit is threatened with extinction, with only about 3,000 rabbits believed to remain on the islands. They were overhunted in the 19th century and today they are faced with further pressure from development. Today they're list as endangered species which is soon become totally extinct if no one breed them.

Wow it doesn't even look like a rabbit. More like a large rodent?

Does it eat the same things as modern bunnies do? This is so intriguing!

klaudea- it's the remnant of ancestor rabbit, so it's very different from the modern one. if we teach them to eat pellet, they will eat it
