The Navajo Nation has three different species of the rabbit (hare) family on the Navajo Nation. The largest is the Black-tailed Jackrabbit, and the smaller ones are named Mountain Cottontail and Desert Cottontail. The jackrabbit is found mostly within open desertlands along with Desert Cottontails. Mountain Cottontails tend to range higher in elevation in forested habitats. Rabbits and hares are herbivores preferring to feed on many different grasses, but also on shrubs such as rabbitbrush, sagebrush and saltbush.
