Rabbit did not know...
The eastern cottontail, Sylvilagus floridanus, is found throughout Nebraska. Its color varies from brown to gray. The tail is white. Habitat is a mix of open areas and sheltering shrubby terrain. They are primarily herbivores and prefer grasses and forbes, flowers, stems, leaves, seeds and fruits in the growing season, and bark and twigs during winter. Their primary resting place is an above-ground depression called a "fomm", made by tramping the vegetation down. Nests for the litters are shallow depressions dug by the female and lined with fur and grass. Their long ears are an identifying feature. Predators include foxes, raccoons, owls, hawks, snakes, dogs, cats, and hunters.
