    So lean! Ours tend to be more round, and only come out into the open at night.

    Abundant rabbits are one thing I miss from living in the city. Just before dark you could see them all over people’s front lawns block after block, hopping around, and a few mid-day as well. I suppose the foxes and hawks make them more wary out here.

    “Bunny Wabbit” — I read that as Lapin [avec] Wasabi


    But how do you know it isn’t a Zygon ?
    (Possibly disguised as the Wasabi ?)

    Nice. Our cottontails tend to be a bit more plump, even here in the desert.

    I saw a fairly rare jackrabbit last week, but I was driving and couldn’t stop to get a picture.

    If you’ve never seen a jackrabbit in person, the first time can be disconcerting when you realize how big they are.

    Apologies for being pedantic, but jackrabbits are hares, not rabbits(not that anyone has said they are rabbits). Hares tend to be fast, and apparently are usually larger than rabbits. Famously, hares don’t nest in underground burrows and their babies are not as helpless as a rabbit’s.
