Meet the ‘Magic Bunny’. This extraordinary ‘lli Pika’ rabbit-like mammal is rarer than the panda. Unfortunately, it is believed there are less than 1000 of this mysterious breed left in the world. This species was discovered in 1983 in China by retired conservationist Li Weidong. Li Weidong went on to spend over 30 years protecting and documenting this highly endangered creature.

This unusual species is approximately 20.3–20.4 cm in length and is believed to weigh up to 250g. He has brightly colored hair with large rusty-red spots on forehead, crown, and the sides of the neck.

Li Weidong has only seen this elusive creature on a handful of occasions and was lucky enough to capture some footage of the lli pika. I think we can all agree this teddy bear faced creature is adorable!
