This “Magic Bunny” is one of the cutest, adorable, and most rare animals that you may have never seen before. A retired animal lover and conservationist named Li Weidong shared these amazing photographs on social media and they’ve quickly gone viral.
What’s more amazing is that he’s encountered one before. His first encounter came in 1983 and he remembers it fondly. He says, “I had been climbing a mountain for four hours, and was just catching my breath, when suddenly, I saw the shadow of a small creature running by. I sat down next to some rocks, and suddenly two bunny ears emerged from the crack of one of the rocks. The little thing was staring at me, blinking at me. I thought it was the most beautiful and bizarre creature I’d ever seen. I couldn’t believe my eyes.”
The animal is known as the Ili Pika and they’re small rabbit-like mammals who are simply adorable. They live in small holes between rocks in mountains extremely high up. They have no problem with the cold temperatures and eat herbs.
