Another beautiful animal gone....declared extinct. This is madness.
Native to a remote region of China, this tiny mammal, known as the Ili pika, doesn't know it's a member of an endangered species -- and neither do most people. Rarer -- and some would argue cuter-- than the panda, there are less than 1,000 of these teddy bear-like creatures living in the Tianshan mountain range in the Xinjiang region of northwestern China
Native to the Xinjiang region of China, there are only 1,000 of these tiny, cute creatures, known as the Ili pika, left. The species was photographed for the first time in more than 20 years on July 9, 2014.

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.

Called “feathered apes” for their simian like smarts, crows make a variety of tools, which newer generations improve upon - the juvenile period is very long allowing time for training in these skills; and recognize themselves and humans. Given a complex problem and an assortment of tools, New Caledonian crows came up with a creative solution that hints at higher-order thinking.

Later in star's may also be marked with colorful red and yellow spots along the caterpillar's back. It is found in woodlands, from Florida to Mississippi, north all the way to Minnesota, southern Ontario, and Massachusetts. It feeds mostly on oak, but also elm, hickory and maple.
