The New Champion of Cute

The Ili Pika, an animal discovered in China's Tianshan Mountains 20 years ago, but then lost again, and now rediscovered.

My first impression was that it looks like a hyrax, often referred to in English translations of the Bible as a "hare", but absolutely not related to actual hares.

Then I looked up the critter on Wikipedia and learned this "Ila Pika" is itself actually related to real hares!

Funny how things work out sometimes, no?
