The animal of the day is the Jackrabbit aka the Black-tailed Hare. (Did you know: Their scientific name is hilarious to me for some reason! Lepus californicus! get it? Leap-us? Like, they jump alot! Whatever.
Jackrabbits are actually hares, not rabbits. Hares are larger than rabbits, and they typically have taller hind legs and longer ears. Jackrabbits were named for their ears, which initially caused some people to refer to them as “jackass rabbits.”
