Rabbits and Hares
Hares are larger than rabbits, and their ears are much longer than those
of the rabbit. When you only get a quick glimpse of the animal the long
ears are the easiest way to differentiate between a hare and a rabbit.
Hares have longer legs than a rabbit and can run much faster than rabbits. When a rabbit runs away from you, you will see its white scut, as the tail is called; the hare does not have a white scut.
Rabbits are sociable animals and live in underground colonies called warrens. Hares live solitary lives above ground and sleep (and give birth) in scratched-out depressions called forms.
Baby rabbits are called kittens. They are born without fur and their eyes are shut; they are totally dependent upon their mothers. Baby hares are called leverets and are born with fur, their eyes wide open and they are able to fend for themselves within a hour of their birth, with their mother only visiting once or twice a day to feed their baby.
Sometimes, depending where in the world they live, a hare's coat will change colour and become white in winter but a rabbit's coat never changes colour at all.

I saw a little bunny
going hop, hop, hop.
I said, "Please, Mr. Bunny,
won't you stop, stop, stop."
He flapped his big, long ears
and had no words to say,
And before I could get near him
he had hop, hop, hopped away!
