Less than one foot long, pygmy rabbits can be seen wearing earthy tones.
Smallest of all North American rabbits, the Pygmy rabbit resembles its relatives in miniature form. Its primary food source and shelter is sagebrush. They use their front incisors to cut their food while the teeth closer to the back grind it. Their front teeth never dull because they grow throughout their whole life. If threatened, they bounce away looking for a place to hide. Depending on speed to escape from predators, these mammals use their hind legs and feet, often bounding in a zig zag pattern or even just leaping straight up into the air.
Fun Facts: Pygmy rabbits are as heavy as a soccer ball.
