Description

Conejo serrano captado en un proyecto de monitoreo biológico comunitario dentro del APFF Campo Verde, Madera, Chihuahua.
Conejo mediano (LT 310-400 mm), de color café jaspeado con negro con franjas naranjas en los costados y una mancha del mismo color en la nuca, su característica distintiva son las orejas cortas y anchas y un anillo ocular de color crema.
A pesar de que forman parte de la dieta de casí todos los depredadores, es la especie de conejo más común en la zona ya que las hembras pueden tener hasta 7 camadas por año compuestas de 3-6 crías.
Es de hábitos crepusculares o nocturnos, aunque también se le puede encontar en el día en hábitats con buena cobertura vegetal. En la zona se le encentra en bosques de coníferas, praderas y matorrales.

After Elizabeth got off work, we went to the Oakmont Park. This is such an AWESOME park with some great limestone areas... However, it was really really hot, so we didn't stay too long. :)
