This image was included in something I was browsing through. It reminds me of my lion head rabbit, but the head shape doesn't match.

Is this some kind of Siberian wild rabbit?

Thanks to @Satwik's tip about google image search, I was able to figure out that the animal in question is a Viscacha. Though the source answer is thanks to reddit, so take that as you will.

Viscachas or vizcachas are rodents of two genera (Lagidium and Lagostomus) in the family Chinchillidae. They are closely related to chinchillas, and look similar to rabbits, apart from their longer tails
