|Rabbit in Palm Springs|
They're especially plentiful on the golf courses that extend from Golf Club Drive near Cathedral City to Sunrise in Palm Springs.
Perhaps your first guest as to what type of rabbit this is was a jackrabbit. We have those to, but the rabbit in the image above is not a jackrabbit. Its ears and body are too small. Jack rabbits live further into the desert. You might see one in South Palm Springs near Indian Canyons.
How about a cottontail rabbit. Were you thinking that? Well...if you were you're close. The rabbit in the image above is a desert cottontail rabbit, pretty common in the Colorado Desert (not Mohave) where we are located.
Desert cottontails like to be near golf courses because they eat grass. Their main predator is the coyote, which also can be found in Palm Springs.
If you want to see these animals, take a hike at Indian Canyons in South Palm Springs.
You might also catch a glimpse of them near downtown by walking southeast on Palm Canyon towards Sunny Dunes.
Look for roadrunners too. They're beautiful.
