The Desert Cottontail is found mainly in the western United States. Not usually active in mid-day, but can be found foraging in the early morning and early evening. They eat plants, grass, even cactus. They get water from plants and morning dew. Desert Cottontails have larger ears than other cottontails, the body is grayish-brown, with a rounded white tail, which is striking as I saw, as this one ran away from me.
