The Rabbit Bulletin: FormosanHare

During the long weekend, I visited National Taiwan Museum, where I saw the exhibition “Discovering Taiwan: Re-visiting the Age of Natural History and Naturalist of Taiwan”. At the exhibition I saw a taxidermy of an endemic rabbit species to Taiwan, the Formosan Hare.

The Formosan Hare is smaller and more slender relative to the European hare. It seems it has shorter ears than its relatives in Europe, and in the Americas.

The Latin name is Lepus sinensis formosus.
