This species: Jackapheasalope
One of the world’s rarest and most unusual animals…The FLYING JACKALOPE is most frequently found in South Dakota’s Badlands around Wall. It is extremely shy and capable of blinding speed to escape detection. Because of its evasive nature it has not been considered one of the “endangered species” despite its rarity. This prize photo was taken with a telephoto lens a short way east of Wall.
