Ili Pika is a kind of rabbit which is very rare to spot. In fact, it is one of the most endangered species on the planet. This adorable little thing was first discovered in 1983 by conservationist Weidong Li. It was only 20 years afterwards that the Ili Pika was again spotted and photographed, weirdly enough, by Weidong Li again!
Check out the adorable pictures of this cute little rabbit.
This is conservationist Weidong Li. He was the one who first discovered the Ili Pika in 1983, and again spotted it 20 years later, for the fist time in the whole 20 years.
The Ili Pika is one of the rarest and most endangered species on the planet.
This little guy is the first one of its kind to be photographed in a long 20 years.
It has given the nickname of 'magic rabbit' because of its elusive nature.
Only an odd 1,000 adult Ili Pika rabbits are believed to be living in the wild as of today.
We do hope this 'magic rabbit' multiplies its population fast enough so that it can move out of the endangered species category quickly.
