Piping Hare

Piping hare
Hokkaido is the only place in Japan where piping hares distribute. Their main habitats are in the high mountains of the Taisetsu range. The piping hare has a body length of slightly less than 20 cm. Also called a "mouse hare," it squeaks like a mouse. It also looks like a mouse, but it is actually a lagomorph that migrated from the continent in the ice age.
