Thread Name: Lyr Req: Songs about Rabbits
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Songs about Rabbits.
Just to clear up a couple of misconceptions in this thread:
Rabbits and Hares are not Rodents - they both belong to the species Lagomorph - which also includes the mountain hare.


Well, almost right; they're lagomorphs, which is the colloquial name for the family, equivalent to "rodents". I'm in the middle of transporting a workplace from one building to another and my references are packed away but the scientific binomial (genus and specific epithet), for the rabbit that has gone feral in Oz, is Oryctolagus cuniculus
