Leporidae (hares and rabbits)

Wikipedia Abstract

The Leporidae are a family of mammals that include rabbits and hares, over 60 species in all. The Latin word Leporidae means "those that resemble lepus" (hare). Together with the pikas, the Leporidae constitute the mammalian order Lagomorpha. Leporidae differ from pikas in that they have short, furry tails and elongated ears and hind legs. The term "leporid" may be used as a noun ("a member of the family Leporidae") or as an adjective ("like members of the Leporidae").
