The Volcano rabbit (Romerolagus diazi) is the world’s second-smallest species of rabbit. Found in mountainous areas of Mexico, it communicates using high-pitched squeaks, and is active at dusk and dawn. This rabbit is now listed as an endangered species, with only approximately 1,200 individuals estimated to survive in the wild.

Third printing, from 1968. I am in love with this book.
