	I looked this subject up in Roger Tory Peterson's field guide because I
thought maybe they were all hares in this country. He lists quite a few
rabbits in the Genus Sylvlagus: Eastern Cottontail=Sylvilagus
floridanus, Mountain Cottontail= Sylvilagus nuttalli, New England
Cottontail=Sylvilagus auduboni, Brush Rabbit=Sylvilagus bachmani, marsh
rabbit=Sylvilagus palustris, Swamp Rabbit=Sylvilagus aquaticus, and
Pygmy Rabbit=Sylvilagus idahoensis
