Rabbit

Rabbits are found in a variety of environments all over the world. They have key adaptations to help them deal with predators. The most obvious is the large sensitive ears, capable of picking out the sound of a stalking predator. Their long, powerful hind legs also give them a considerable speed advantage if the predator gives chase. Finally, and perhaps least obvious, is their short fluffy tail – much harder to grab hold of than a long dangly one!
