Join the conversationJoin the conversation

Kelsey, thanks for the lesson on scrub hares. Another lesser known yet important species in the eco system.

Pleasure William, I hope you enjoyed learning something new.

Lovely creatures! I hope to see some in the future

Yes, I hope you do see them soon too Francesca!

Kelsey the scrub hares are beautiful in their own right and often overlooked. They are fast and I love the scrub hares and feel sorry for them when caught by a predator. Thanks for the blog on the hares.

Pleasure Valmai. I agree they are beautiful so it can be tough to see them being caught yet great to see the role that they can play in the skill development of predators.

Great photos, Kelsey. Thanks for explaining the differences between hares and rabbits.
I love seeing these hares during evening drives. And we have indeed sometimes counted them.

Thank you Christa, I’m glad you enjoyed the blog and have had some fun counting scrub hares before!

Thanks Kelsey for the well-written and informative article. Now I truly understand the differences between the two. Great images of the scrub hares by James Tyrrell – kudos to him for that leveret capture!

My pleasure Denise, I’m glad I could clarify the differences for you. I agree, it is a great picture of the leveret 🙂

That was a very interesting explanation Kelsey, and some great photos too. Thank you!

Pleasure Barbara, I’m glad you enjoyed the blog.

Thanks for teaching me something new today. I didn’t realize there were such differences between e offspring of hares and rabbits.

My pleasure Chelsea, very happy to hear you learnt something new.

Hi Kelsey, your scrub hare article really made Rachel and I smile as we remember our fantastic days with you recently. It’s a dozen if going by the air strip! Best wishes to you and Bennett and all at Londolozi from the UK. Hopefully it won’t be too long before we visit again.

Hi Richard, I’m glad to hear you and Rachel are still reminiscing – that really was a great few days! Thank you for the wishes and hopefully you will be planning the next trip soon! 🙂

Very interesting! I’ve seen them in the bush, but didn’t know much about their biology. Thanks!

Glad you enjoyed the blog Paul 🙂
