Patagonian Hare at Eco-Park in Palermo, Buenos Aires, Argentina

One of the few animals roaming freely at the Buenos Aires Eco-Park is the Patagonian hare. This large rodent (27 to 30 inches) resembling a jackrabbit is indigenous to Argentina. It is entertaining to watch as monogamous pairs hop along while grazing on tall grass. Especially cute are the young Patagonian maras. New litters are born in September and October.
