Additional Details:
True Plains Rabbit lives only in the West. Burrow-like ears gave him his name. Color is protective, blending with sand and dry grass. Very longlegs made him a swift runner. Clocked at speeds to 45 miles an hour. Object of hunts with Greyhounds. The rabbit was prized by Plains Indians for food and fur, to the white man a reminder of Desert Hard Life. In Drought and Depression times, it was a source of meat for thousands. Subject of many tall tales. ?Hero of World's only Jackrabbit rodeo in Odessa, May 1932.
