More than half of the world’s rabbit population can be found in North America, with their habitat ranging from grasslands, meadows, deserts, mountains, forests, and wetlands. Known for their large ears and hind legs made for jumping, rabbits unsurprisingly have an excellent sense of hearing, smell, and vision, which is important since they are one of the most common prey for mammals throughout North America. Next time you see a rabbit hopping in your neighborhood, take a moment to appreciate this determined little critter.
