The arctic hare (Lepus arcticus), or polar rabbit, is a species of hare which is adapted largely to polar and mountainous habitats. The arctic hare survives with a thick coat of fur and usually digs holes under the ground or snow to keep warm and sleep.
This pin was originally labeled Rabbit , so I pinned it to my bunny board. This morning a fellow pinner brought to my attention that this beautiful creature is a viscacha , and actually belongs to the rodent family. That's one cute rodent !
