Females can give birth to thirty young annually.
Coming out to eat at dusk, rabbits and hares find soft shoots and grasses while being alert to potential danger. They use their front incisors to cut their food while the teeth near the back grind it. Their front teeth never dull because they grow throughout their entire life. When threatened, they bounce away looking for a place to hide. Depending on speed to escape from predators, these mammals use their strong hind legs and feet, often bounding in a zig zag pattern or even just leaping into the air.
