Solange, a federally endangered female pygmy rabbit (Brachylagus idahoensis). She was born in May of 2007. She is 81.5% Columbia Basin pygmy rabbit, and the rest is the Idaho race. Since there are no male Columbia Basin pygmy rabbits left, this means only animals intercrossed with the Idaho race will survive.
