Jack Rabbit (Lepus californicus)
Maleta also wanted a rabbit, but instead, she’s getting a hare! Several varieties of jack rabbits live in western North America, but they’re not really rabbits. Hares are different because their babies (called leverets) are born with fur and open eyes, while baby rabbits (or kits) are born hairless with their eyes closed. Also, rabbits make nests in which to give birth, while hares don’t.
