A Desert Cottontail is a brush rabbit found in desert grassland and creosote brush areas in the western part of the United States and Mexico. Rabbits are grazing mammals, Desert Cottontails will eat grass, mesquite, bark, twigs, cacti, and green plants. They have long ears and hindlegs with bulging eyes on the side of their heads, which enables them to keep watch over a wide area. They will use logs and stumps as lookout posts. Because they live in sparse vegetation areas, they will rest in the burrows of other animals. Generally, these rabbits will hide from enemies in ground cover that is dense, rather than run, although when they are running, they can switch directions instantly. Desert Cottontails will rest in the burrows of other animals. I saw this Desert Cottontail in Sedona, Arizona on an autumn morning.
