Unbelievably Cute Mammal With Teddy Bear Face Rediscovered. Good job rediscovering the Ili pika (Ochotona iliensis)
Magic Rabbit, Or Peak, First Time, Teddy Bears, 20 Years, Photo, Ilipika, Animal, China
Clinging To A Precipice Li Weidong In remote northwest China, the cliffs of the Tian Shan mountains provide the last holdout for the Ili pika, a tiny rabbit relative with a shrinking habitat. The Ili pika was always a rare and elusive creature, and it’s becoming rarer. Last summer it was photographed for the first time in 20 years, and the adorable photos were published this month in National Geographic's China edition. Conservationist Li Weidong, the photographer, discovered the species in 1983. Since then, he’s documented the Ili pika’s decline. Analyzing tracks and droppings, Li and another scientist estimate that the Ili pika’s numbers dropped from 2,900 in the 1990s to 2,000 in 2005. There may be only 1,000 Ili pika left today. "I discovered the species, and I watched as it became endangered," Li told CNN. "If it becomes extinct in front of me, I'll feel so guilty." Climate change is believed to be the culprit behind the Ili pika’s demise. As mountaintop glaciers melt, the animals have to climb to higher and higher elevations to find a permanently snowy habitat. Soon they may have nowhere else to go. Though the IUCN lists the Ili pika as endangered, CNN notes that the animal is not included on China's List of Wildlife under Special State Protection.

Rare, Adorable Pika Photographed For First Time in Decades Ili pikas, nicknamed “magic rabbits,” grow to be about 7 inches long, and they live at cool, high elevations on the craggy rock faces of mountains in China. But like so many other endangered animals, Ili pikas are seeing their habitats gobbled up by grazing livestock, climate change and pollution. To escape these threats, Ili pikas climb higher into the mountains, but they’re running out of room.

The Collared Puffbird (Bucco capensis) is a sit-and-wait hunting bird found across the northern region of South America in the Amazon Basin, southern Colombia and Venezuela, and the Guianas. The puffbirds are an insectivorous bird family related to the jacamars, but lacking the iridescent colors of that group.

"Mammatus clouds are most often associated with the anvil cloud and severe thunderstorms. They often extend from the base of a cumulonimbus, but may also be found under altocumulus, altostratus, stratocumulus, and cirrus clouds, as well as volcanic ash clouds. When occurring in cumulonimbus, mammatus are often indicative of a particularly strong storm or perhaps even a tornadic storm."

Phenomenon was what's commonly referred to as a "fire rainbow" was seen above the skies of South FL by many viewers. Pileus clouds are caused by a fast-growing thunderstorm that shoves air into the upper atmosphere through a layer of moisture, creating a layer of ice crystals. These ice crystals form the fog-like cloud that looks like a dome on top of the thunderstorm. The sun helps form an optical phenomenon through the ice crystals of the pileus clouds and produces a rainbow effect.
