Pygmy rabbit (Brachylagus idahoensis), Montana, USA. Pygmy rabbits are the smallest rabbit or hare species in the world. Pygmy rabbits need deep soils to dig their burrows. They are dependent on tall, dense sagebrush for both cover and food. In winter their food almost exclusively consists of big sagebrush.
