RABBITS— DIFFERENCE —I would like to know the difference between a jack rabbit, cottontail and snowshoe rabbit.
The jack rabbit of the Western Plains is the largest animal of the three mentioned. It is in reality a hare and is conspicuous because of its long ears and legs and the black spot on the top of the tail. It is a very fast runner, leaping high and alighting on all four feet. The cottontail is the smallest of the three and is the common gray rabbit of the East and South. The varying hare or snowshoe rabbit is a northern species, somewhat larger than the cottontail but smaller than the jack. It is white in winter and reddish brown in summer.
