Caproligus Hispidus
Pygmy Hogs are usually 55-71 cm long and an inch tall. Males are larger than females. It lives up to 14 years(half of that in the wild). They are found at the terai region of Nepal and Assam of India and a part of Bhutan. They are really hard to find due to their small size and the dense habitat they live in.

The Rare
The Pygmy Hog
(Sus salvanius).
The Pygmy Hog is extremely rare to find as there's 150 or less in the world. They are also hard to find due to size and the dense habitat they live in. It's extinction would lead to a loss of a unique branch of pigs. It is the smallest and rarest branch of pigs.

Class: Mammalia
Order: Artiodactyla
Family: Suidae
Subfamily: Suinae
Genus: Porcula
Why save the Hispid Hare?
The Hispid Hare plays a pivotal role in its region. It is food to many carnivores such as jackals, crested serpent eagles and even domestic dogs. The population of jackals would go down, since the hispid hare is one of its main
food. Also the hispid hare is extremely rare with only a estimate of 100 left in the wild the animal is very close to extinct so humans (who have caused alot of destruction to the habitat of the Hispid hare) should fix what they damaged
Habits & Lifestyle

The diet of the Hispid Hare consists of grass, shrubs, roots & occasionally cultivated crops. The Hispid Hare breeds once or twice a year with which usually occurs in late winter and early spring.The hispid hare usually doesn't make its own burrow but lives in the burrows of other animals. Also the hispid hare isn't actually a hare, its a rabbit. (known as the assam rabbit)
In an ecosystem, animals live in a volatile harmony of sorts. They all help each other out with their little job. Red pandas help balance the population of bamboo, small mammals, insects, and other munchies. However, some animals eat red pandas too; two primary candidates being the snow leopard and the marten. The primary consumers of red pandas are snow leopards, which happen to not only be endangered, but are also apex predators. They are already threatened enough – snatching away a food source will almost certainly ensure a quicker demise.
