Little Rabbit Climbs Big Sage

Pygmy Rabbit from Chris Wemmer on Vimeo.

I had the good fortune this month to spend a few days in the sage steppe of the eastern Sierra Nevada, where I managed to snag these clips of a pygmy rabbit.

The species has been on my camera trapping bucket list for several years now.

For a lot more about this charming lagomorph, see Nature of a Man Blog, and be sure to search Ken's other posts for a lot more about Pygmy Rabbits.

I am grateful for Ken's help in getting these video clips, and sincerely appreciate the Catani family's efforts to protect  habitat for California's wildlife.

Very nice video Chris, and well done on the narration.

I really enjoyed the commentary, very well done!
Those rabbits are darn cute.
I recently got some video clips (from an IR camera trap) of neophobic rodents. I'll try to find some time this weekend to share it on my blog. ;)
