Sumatran striped rabbit is black with brown stripes running down the face and body. Their underside is white with a red rump and tail. The coat is dense and soft, overlaid by harsher and longer hairs. They were thought to be the sole member of the Nesolagus until the Annamite striped rabbit was discovered.
These animals are shy and only feed during the night; their diet comprises stalks and leaves. They rest in burrows abandoned by other animals. Sumatran striped rabbit is so rare that even the local people are mostly unaware of their existence!
