Brush Rabbit

Scientific Name: Sylvilagus bachmani
Conservation Status: Least concern
Natural Location: Western North America

The Brush rabbit can only be found on the west-coast of North America. As its name implies it lives in thick brush or grassland areas.

Most rabbits dig their own burrow in which they live in, however the brush rabbit inhabits the burrow that another animal has dug and abandoned.

The Brush rabbit is the smallest cottontail rabbit in North America. However, it differs in one noticeable way from other cottontails, the bottom of its tail is not white but rather gray. Cottontail rabbits are noted for having all white tails which is likely the reason it is called the Brush Rabbit and not the Brush Cottontail.
