Ili Pika is one of the rarest and most endangered animals in the world. This adorable animal was first discovered in 1983 by Li Weidong in the Tianshian mountains in China. He was also responsible to capture the animal on camera after two decades. The animal lives on high altitudes and looks like a rabbit.
It is quite unfortunate that the population of the species has declined by almost 70% since its discovery in the early ’80s. There are less than 1000 individuals left in the wild.
Li felt that he discovered the species and watched it became endangered. He said that if it becomes extinct now, he will feel very guilty.
When he came to know that no one was going to help the creature, Li decided to take the matter into his own hands. In 2014, he gathered a team of 20 volunteers in order to track down the cute animal to know about its number and to help in the conservation of the animal.
Unfortunately, Li was quite disappointed that the authorities did not take any interest in the conservation of the species. Li spent most of his money on the research. Li felt that those tiny species could be extinct at any time as they did not exist in the sites where they used to be found earlier.
The conservationist further said that he was almost 60 years old and then he would not be able to climb the Tianshan Mountains and he really hoped that an organization would have people who would study and protect the Ili Pika.
According to Li, this creature is found at the height of 13,450 in the Tianshian mountains. We really hope that some people will surely come forward and take measures to help protect this adorable creature.
It would be impawsible to emphasize pro-purr-ly just how σbsεssεd with Sphynx cats we are. While it’s easy to poke fun at the peculiar looking cats, we also refuse to deny how fascinating cats like the iconic Sphynx are! We love relentlessly gushing over fun facts about the unique cat breed because there is just so much to delight in about them.
On top of that, Sphynx cats are just so gosh darn funny to look at sometimes. Don’t get us wrong, these lovely kitty cats can be incredibly regal at times, but because of their unusual lack of traditional fur, they also end up being the center of some of the funniest photos of cats we’ve ever seen and here are the receipts.

Smart cat. Did you know? “Sphynx cats are approximately 4 degrees warmer than most cats and as kittens they often prefer warm snuggles to stay warm.”
