Cottontail bunny between prickly pear cactus by Michael Jennings
Cottontail rabbits are named for their fluffy “cotton ball” tail. Cottontails (Sylvilagus) in the desert conserve their energy during the hot, dry daylight hours of summer, but they may be seen at any time of day. If a predator is near, a rabbit may freeze, blending into its surroundings, or it may run in a zigzag pattern, reaching speeds of up to twenty miles an hour. If the predator is small, the rabbit may bowl it over and give it a kick with its strong hind legs.
