Rare Rabbits Bounce Back

These tiny bundles can’t hop too high, they’re the world’s smallest rabbits. The Columbian Basin Pygmy weighs less than a pound and was declared extinct in the 1990s when the remaining 14 living bunnies were taken into captivity.

But as these pictures show, they could be making a comeback. Staff at Oregon Zoo in the US have welcomed a new litter of 25,
bringing the breeding programs total to 73 this year.
