In a recent blog, we visited some interesting rabbits and hares that are found around the continent. They are a furry animal that is also used as a pet for many homes. They are so loved that Clark The Carver has many requests to carve the likes of them. They are a great option for a carving since they are fun to look at and have a very natural look for a carving. Each species of rabbit and hare has their own unique look as well as things that are common to them specifically. That makes knowing more about them important when you meet with Clark about your very own custom chainsaw carving.
Carve Me A Bear! Chainsaw Carving Lists the Next Five Rabbits & Hares That Can Be Carved Into A Piece Of Wood for Spring, Easter or Any Occasion
White Tailed Jackrabbit: One of the most common predators that plague almost any kind of rabbit or hare are birds of prey. They swing down and grab a hold of a rabbit as a tasty meal. The white tailed jackrabbit is usually brown in color with some dark brown or black markings. The name comes from their fluffy white tail that sticks out! They are adapted to the area and do their work at night. This is to avoid the birds of prey that are out looking for an easy meal in the daylight hours. White tailed jackrabbits are found in many types of climates but they choose to eat twigs and fruit as their main source of food.
Antelope Jackrabbit: This is a type of jackrabbit that is native to Arizona but can also be found around parts of New Mexico. The most interesting characteristic about an antelope jackrabbit is they have extremely large ears that are nearly hairless. The ears are their best defense and allows them to hear really well when trying to avoid potential predators. The naked ears also allow them to be able to function in hotter climates without overheating. Antelope jackrabbits are also one of the larger of the jackrabbits with the adults coming in around ten pounds fully grown. They live and breed well in desert climates.
Swamp Rabbit: This is a small bunny that is actually found in swampy areas. They love the wetland, swamp and aquatic ecosystems. Swamp rabbits are found in many places in the US. They are a small rabbit and are only about five pounds fully grown. They have a unique pattern to their fur that allow them to hide in the surrounding brush to avoid the common predators. They are sought after by hawks, alligators and more. They don’t have very large ears and that helps them with their camouflage as well.
Desert Cottontail: If you are looking to learn about a rabbit that is extremely social and lives in colonies with other rabbits the desert cottontail is your rabbit. They live in many desert regions throughout the US and are usually in colonies with many other rabbits. They are adapted to the windy season and when the winds are roaring they tend to lay still. They don’t move much because it is harder to hear if there is danger approaching.
Brush Rabbit: They are a similar rabbit to other cottontails with one exception and that is their tail is grey in color. Brush rabbits are a smaller rabbit and choose to hide during the day in the bushes and growth that they live around. They come out when the sun goes down and look for food.
