Description

The Horned Hare is a small mammal that sports powerful legs and large distinctive ears. Darker tufts of fur protrude from the tip of its ears. The hare is dominantly brown in colour; however, it also possesses silver to grey patches of fur as it ages.

A single unique horn is present on the hare's forehead and has been observed to being used as a tool of both defending itself against predators and even to assist in digging up roots from the ground.
