Antelope Jackrabbits are very versatile in the sense that they make their homes in a variety of conditions. They can be found in sandy deserts as well as grassy fields.

The Antelope Jackrabbit is a large surface area on their ears which helps to expel the heat from their body. This is a common trait of rabbits and hares that live in hot climates.

The Antelope Jackrabbit is noted for its large hind legs. This characteristic allows them to run fast and jump high when attempting to escape from predators.
