Biodiversity challenge – Hispaniolan hutia

Hutia love?

No, the fat tree rat
They call the zagouti
Won’t win a prize for
Conventional beauty,
Probably wouldn’t
Look good in Cerruti,
But whether or not
We think it’s a cutie,
Saving its skin should
Be everyone’s duty.
Let’s give a hoot about
Cuvier’s hutia.
