Clouds, Squirrels, Minx and Bunnies

Whether it is pursued behind a pack of beagles or it is encountered on some early morning in your own backyard, the Eastern cottontail rabbit (Sylvilagus floridanus) is one of Oklahoma’s most well known and beloved wildlife species.

The cottontail rabbit has been a huge success in adapting to man’s manipulations of the environment. When homesteaders first came to this state rabbits found new garden buffets, and as subdivisions now go up in our metropolitan areas, rabbits find remaining niches of cover to raise their young. They can be found from southern Canada to South America, predominantly east of the Rocky Mountains.

Mostly ears and legs, an adult cottontail measures about 16 inches and weighs between two and three pounds. It has soft brown hair and a white underbelly, as well as its namesake cotton ball-like tail. Similar to the whitetail deer, the cottontail will raise its tail like a warning flag when fleeing danger.
Cottontails can be found in a variety habitats, but are most abundant in open country. Rabbits will most often be found anywhere two types of cover meet, such as fence rows, or in tangled thickets in pastures or along roadsides. Rabbits also show a preference to areas not far from a water source whether it be a pond, creek or spring.  . . . .
