With noses that twitch and tails gone fuzzy, rabbits can be adorable as pets or as one of the gathering at backyard feeders. However, they can wreak havoc on landscaping and gardens, feasting on a range of plants from young trees and broccoli to tree nuts, berries and herbs.
Common rabbits range from the house cat-sized jackrabbit to their smaller cousins, the cottontails and brush rabbits, which are about twelve inches long. The jackrabbit tips the scales at a hefty three to seven pounds while the cottontail and brush rabbits weigh about two pounds. All have brown to grey fur with varying tints.
Rabbits leave behind coarse, circular fecal "pellets" about 1/2-inch in diameter.
