white-tailed jackrabbit (Lepus townsendii)

During the day, a white-tailed jackrabbit rests in a “form,” a shallow pit in the earth under grass clumps or shrubs. It hides there all day, ears flat on its back. Jackrabbits begin foraging in the low light of evening, hopping across open areas or following trails made by other jackrabbits through sagebrush. Foraging continues all night, especially when the moon is out. In early morning jackrabbits return to resting forms to wait out the day.
