After reading some of the posts from other forums and knowing that their have been instances where domestic/pet rabbits have been let loose or ran off into the wild. I am curious if these new species will start establishing populations in those same areas.
Knowing that there are just 2 wild species of hares, that have been identified here in Alaska. I was wondering if any others have also been observed besides these, also include domestic/feral rabbits and hares. If possible please list their (scientific name) as well. This should be interesting. Thanks.
Showshoe Hare (Lepus Americanus)
Alaska/Tundra Hare (Lepus Othus)
