The Spring Hare

This is another animal I saw at the  Field Museum. springharemuseumThe spring hare resembles a tiny kangaroo with long powerful back legs. It is actually neither a kangaroo nor a hare but in fact a rodent. The spring hare lives only in south-eastern Africa, feeding on plant matter and even occasionally insects. Spring hares are hunted to a degree for their meat and sometimes culled to protect crops and are also at risk from habitat loss.

Here is my feltidermy version of a spring hare, you can find it in my Etsy shop.

springharecuI love how his paws really make it look like he is up to no good! Maybe he is plotting evil plans to overthrow all the hunters!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
