Observation: Are there no rabbits in Arkansas?
Since I've been back on the East Coast, I've seen rabbits in both Delaware and Maryland residential neighborhoods. I've always liked seeing the little guys in gardens -- it's very sort of Velveteen Rabbit coming to life-esque -- but for some reason, I'm noticing them more than usual. The only conclusion I can come to is that maybe it's been a few years since I've seen one and that's why they seem so rare.
I remember a few almost run-ins between Clyde and a possum (or is it opossum?) and also seeing many a roadkill version of armadillo (which until Arkansas, I thought was a New Mexico species), but now that I think about it, I can't remember seeing a rabbit. Could this be?
