EUROPEAN HARE

The European hare (Lepus europaeus), also known as the brown hare, is a species of hare native to Europe and Western and Central Asia. It is a mammal adapted to temperate, open country. It is related to and looks very similar to the European rabbit, which is in the same family but in a different genus. Hares are larger than the European rabbit, have longer ears and hind legs and breed on the ground rather than in a burrow. They rely on speed to escape from predators.

Generally nocturnal and shy in nature, hares change their behaviour in the spring, when they can be seen in broad daylight chasing one another around fields and meadows. During this spring frenzy, they can be seen striking one another with their paws ("boxing"). For a long time, this had been thought to be competition between males, but closer observation has revealed it is usually a female hitting a male, either to show she is not yet ready to mate or as a test of his determination. This species has a fairly long breeding season which lasts from January to August. Hares are herbivorous and feed on grasses, herbs, twigs, buds, bark and field crops. Their natural predators include birds of prey, canids and felids.

Hello Marius,
Nice shot of this European Hare. It looks very similar in appearance to the Jack Rabbits which live in our Western States. It posed in an alert stance and I'm guessing is fairly large in size. Nice eye contact and sharply focused.
The only thing we have here in my area of Ohio are Eastern Cotton-tails. They are small compared to a Jack Rabbit.
