RFI: Volcano Rabbit
I’m thinking about visiting Mexico sometime this summer for mammal watching and am in the process of gathering info on species (I’ve already got a bunch of pretty good gen to work with). I’m planning on visiting Chihuahua (Copper Canyon area), Colima/Michoacan, Mexico City area, and Oaxaca (probably saving Baja and Nuevo Leon for another trip) and have lots of target species, so any other gen would be really appreciated. Specifically, I am planning to visit Tehuantepec, Huatulco NP, La Placita (Michoacan), Mexico City area, and Sierra Tarahumara.
I’m having a bit of trouble getting decent sites to try for Volcano Rabbit (very high on my list of course!), as it’s all either old research papers (many from places where they’re now extinct) or imprecise markers on iNaturalist. It seems one of the better spots, the road to Tlamacas, is now closed.
From what I can tell, Popo-Izta NP is the place to be, but specifically where – any current info would be really appreciated on specific sites where I’d have a decent chance of seeing one of these animals. Thanks!
