More Signs to Look For
Brush rabbit feeding sign on grass. Notice the clean cuts on these blades of grass. This is the sort of sign rabbits make. They have sharp incisors and can cut right through the vegetation. Deer lack upper incisors. Deer grip the vegetation with their bottom teeth and tear it off, leaving rough cuts.
This neatly clipped rush stem is the result of feeding by a brush rabbit. Brush rabbits are tiny lagomorphs also called cottontails.
