They better get at least one pair of male/female out of there. Sumatra’s always good for a volcanic blast that’ll end a species.

Every other thread is about skin color.

Cool bunny though! Hope they survive.

"...It is listed as a critically endangered species — its rarity may be due to deforestation and habitat loss..."

And the fact that they just taste so darned good in a stew.

Obama was Citizen of Indonesia not the US or Hawaii. The DNC and our judicial system don’t care about our Constitution. :(

Here's what he's talking about:

"Thanks for viewing / commenting / ratings! The Sumatran Striped Rabbit (Nesolagus netscheri), also known as the Sumatra Short-eared Rabbit or Sumatran Rabbit, is a rabbit found only in forest in the Barisan Mountains in western Sumatra, Indonesia. It is listed as a critically endangered species — its rarity may be due to deforestation and habitat loss. The rabbit is usually about 40 cm (1 ft, 4 in) long. It is gray with brown stripes, with a red tail and rump, and the underside is white. It lives in forests at altitudes of 600-1400 metres. It is nocturnal, resting in the burrows of other animals. It usually eats the stalk and leaves of understory plants, but captive rabbits ate grain, and tropical fruits. Sightings of the species have only been reported three times since 1972, most recently in late January 2007 in a photograph taken with a camera trap installed in Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park."

I, for one, will not have a moment's rest until Obama, Pelosi and Reid pass legislation (preferably in the $2-3 Billion range) to insure the survival, nay, the properous thriving, of this valuable rodent, and until each and every one of them is counted (at least once) and registered to vote by ACORN.
