• Long ears
Hares are a smaller species of animal, with long ears, flat feet, and strong back legs. Most hares have gray pelts, with pale undersides, black-tipped ears, and a black tail with a white underside. Some hares, called red rock hares, have pelts that are more reddish in color, and are considered especially delicious to Mpishi the hawk.
Hares appear to live in burrows, some of which have been abandoned by another species. Hares tend to feed on vegetation or seeds. They are flighty animals and will flee from other animals if they believe themselves to be in danger. Their known predators are hawks and jackals.
