One very interesting animal - The Springhare

This is what we've got when the kangaroo, the hare and the squirrel had a threesome :). On more serious note this a bit strange animal is called South African springhare (Pedetes capensis) or Springhaas in Dutch and is a rodent (which means its not related to the real hares), native to southern Africa.

 What is not visible on the pictures is the size of the springhare, which is not small like it seems on first sight, but rather similar to that of small rabbit.

 Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed the bit of information about that cute beast.
