Annamite Striped Rabbit

The Annamite striped rabbit’s ears are half the length of those of species in genus Lepus, and their tails and limbs are shorter, as well, making them poor runners and burrowers.

Compared to members of the genus Lepus, Annamite striped rabbits have relatively short ears, tails, and limbs. Ear length of Nesolagus is about 43-45 millimeters (1.69-1.77 inches,) half that of those of most rabbits, such as those in the genus, Lepus.

Their short limbs and relatively weak claws make them poor runners and burrowers.
