The hispid hare (Caprolagus hispidus) is in the list of critically endangered small mammals. It was thought to be extinct from Chitwan National Park as it had not been spotted again after its first spotting in 1984.

Now, there is good news for nature lovers and conservationists. A baby hispid hare was caught on camera by a conservationist in Chitwan National Park, 150 kilometres southwest of Nepalese capital Kathmandu.

"The fact that the hispid hare was a baby indicates that there are also parents and both male and female," says Bed Khadka, who is a conservation officer at Chitwan National Park.

I wonder how long before someone tries to use this as evidence in favour of the yeti existing.
