Weekly Animal Pic - Mara

This weeks animal is the wacky looking Mara or Patagonian Cavy. I first noticed a couple of these at our local zoo. I couldn't figure out exactly what the heck this was, it looks kind of like an enormous rabbit. It is a fascinating creature to watch...

For the record, the Mara can be found in South America and eats grass... yuck!

San Nakji for President!

Very interesting! I don't know...but maybe it is the cousin to the jackalope. *grins*

Cool looking animal though. I had never heard of it before!
