The most common rabbit species in Texas is the Eastern cottontail, identifiable by its two- to three-pound body, brown or gray coat, white belly, and distinctive white tail.
They are widespread in brushy areas from southern Canada to South America, predominantly east of the Rocky Mountains. A related species, the desert cottontail (Sylvilagus audubonii), occurs in Texas and the desert Southwest.
This little guy (or girl?) likes to roam around our yard eating random weeds, and occasionally eating our garden plants. It had kids since we moved in, and they'll occasionally come roaming through with it.
