Small terrestrial herbivorous mammals. Rabbits are often grey-brown and are the size of a small cat. Hares are larger and have black tipped ears.
To help protect our environment:
Open habitats, pasture, orchards, crops, gardens, dunes, scrubland.
Heavily browses native seedlings and low-growing plants, alters vegetation composition and suppresses threatened species. Supports increased populations of introduced predators. Can cause major damage to pasture.
