Patagonian mara (Hare) (Dolichotis patagonum)

I loved this animal, it is so funny. It comes from Patagonia, just below Argentina. Unfortunatly, I have taken this one in captivity.

The head.

  11. Bob, guess it didn't need those bunny ears in Patagonia! They'd probably freeze off anyway! It's a pretty little thing!
