Marsh Rabbit

While we were walking the trails at Lake Woodruff NWR, we saw a few small rabbits. Looking them up they seem to be Marsh Rabbits. Marsh rabbits are typically smaller than Eastern Cottontail Rabbits. Adults from the Florida peninsula weigh approximately 2.2–2.6 pounds with a total length upwards of 17 inches. The hind feet of the average mainland marsh rabbit is also larger, at 3.6 inches compared with 3.5 inches for the typical Florida Marsh Rabbit. The featured image was taken @ 600mm.
