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.

Bryn, the federally endangered Columbia Basin pygmy rabbit (Brachylagus idahoensis), sat for this portrait in 2007 at the Oregon Zoo in Portland, Oregon. She was one of two female Columbia Basin pygmy rabbits left, the end of the line for this race of animals. Since there are no males left, this means only animals intercrossed with the Idaho race will survive. She died in 2008, marking the end of her genetic line. This subpopulation lost its sagebrush habitat as the land was developed for agriculture in the state of Washington.
