Hare vs. Rabbit

Hare vs. Rabbit

Hares and rabbits are two similar-looking mammals which each have a variety of breeds.

A hare is a small bounding (hopping) mammal with long ears, well-developed back legs, and a short tail. They are native to parts of North America, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. They have been introduced to Australia, where they have become pests.

A rabbit is a small bounding (hopping) mammal with long ears, well-developed back legs, and a short tail. Oftentimes, they are kept as domesticated pets. A rabbit's front teeth never stop growing. Rabbits are known for their prolific rates of reproduction.

Both hares and rabbits are mainly herbivores. Hares are born with eyes open and covered in fur, whereas rabbits are bare and blind at birth. They are both generally nocturnal and live in underground burrows. Hares are usually larger and faster than rabbits, with larger feet and longer ears.
