Cape Hare

Unread postby moobox » Tue Jul 08, 2014 6:23 pm

Hello all
So I was driving along the Rabelais Loop early one morning last week and this guy was sitting right next to the road. Actually sitting there with a pal who had his back to me.

Sorry about the quality of the photograph but I'm still trying to get the hang of this photography thing hey. From what I've been able to find out, my guess is it's a Scrub Hare. Any knowledgables agree or care to set me straight please?

Cheers - Ed

Golden Rule of any SANPark - DO NOT feed or put food out for ANY species whatsoever!
