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.
Timid and quick to flee.
Found throughout the grasslands and has even adapted to living near urban areas. Thrives in deserts as well.
