Rabbits & Hares   

1     If we take a stroll in a park at dusk, we can often spot a rabbit nibbling grasses or tree bark. We'd like to get nearer for a good look at this furry animal. But its long ears pick up the sound of our footsteps. It quickly hops across the green field and disappears into the twilight.
 
2     We often call a rabbit a hare or a hare a rabbit. But there are some noticeable distinctions between these two look-alike animals. The easiest way to tell a rabbit from a hare is to see its newborns. Baby rabbits are born hairless, blind, and completely helpless. Baby hares have furry coats. Their eyes are wide open, and they can hop around soon after birth.
 
3     To tell the difference between an adult rabbit and an adult hare, you may have to run after the animal to see where it lives. Rabbits dig holes and live in burrows under the ground. Hares build their nests above the ground. Rabbits like to live in large groups. Hares tend to be loners. Usually hares are bigger and move faster than rabbits.
