Pronolagus randensis, Jameson’s Red Rock Rabbit, northwest Namibia inhabitant

It can be found in internet that the rabbits living in Mirabib are formally named in English Jameson’s Red Rock Rabbits, Latin Pronolagus randensis. The German name is much more descriptive concerning the outlooks, Rand-Wollschwanzhase, “the (desert) rand woolen tail hare”. In comparison, the Czech name chooses to describe the habitat instead: Červená skála zajíc, the “red rock hare”. They even pose on two Namibian post stamps.
