ETYM AS. hara; akin to Dutch haas, German hase, Old High Germ. haso, Dan. and Swed. hare, Icel. hęri, Skr. çaça. (Homonym: hair). Swift timid long-eared mammal larger than a rabbit having a divided upper lip and long hind legs; young born furred and with open eyes. Mammal of the genus Lepus of the family Leporidae (which also includes rabbits) in the order Lagomorpha. Hares are larger than rabbits, with very long, black-tipped ears, long hind legs, and short, upturned tails. Throughout the long breeding season June–Aug, there are chases and “boxing matches” among males and females; the expression “mad as a March hare” arises from this behavior. Unlike rabbits, hares do not burrow. Their furred, open-eyed young (leverets) are cared for in a shallow depression rather than a specially prepared nest cavity. Jack rabbits and snowshoe rabbits are actually hares.
ETYM Old Eng. rabet, akin to OD. robbe, robbeken.

Any of several genera of hopping mammals of the order Lagomorpha, which together with hares constitute the family Leporidae. Rabbits differ from hares in bearing naked, helpless young and in occupying burrows.
The Old World rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus), originally from S Europe and N Africa, has now been introduced worldwide. It is bred for meat and for its fur, which is usually treated to resemble more expensive furs. It lives in interconnected burrows called “warrens”, unlike cottontails (genus Sylvilagus), of which 13 species are native to North and South America.
