The Ili Pika is a species of mammal endemic to northwest China.
After their discovery in 1983, they were not documented again until 2014.
Sadly, their population is declining, likely due to the effects of climate change.
These beautiful creatures are currently considered to be endangered, with approximately less than 1,000 left.
Conservationist Li Weidong said: "This tiny species could be extinct any time. They don't exist in the sites where they used to be anymore."
