Discover: Brown hare
As suggested by their name, brown hares are golden-brown, with their larger size, long legs and long black-tipped ears setting them apart from rabbits.
Brown hares live in grasslands and woodland edges, especially where these habitats meet arable field and hedgerows. They graze on plants and bark and make use of shallow dips in the ground or grass for shelter instead of burrows.
