This pin was originally labeled Rabbit , so I pinned it to my bunny board. This morning a fellow pinner brought to my attention that this beautiful creature is a viscacha , and actually belongs to the rodent family. That's one cute rodent !
A Herbivorous Viscacha and Her Baby. Viscachas or vizcachas are rodents of two genera (Lagidium and Lagostomus) in the family Chinchillidae. They are closely related to chinchillas, and look similar to rabbits, apart from their longer tails.
