Jackrabbits are mammals in the same family as rabbits. All Jackrabbits are hares. The word jackrabbit comes from a book by Mark Twain, in which he describes the creature as a jackass rabbit, on account of the hare's ears looking as though they belonged to a donkey. Later on this term was shortened to jackrabbit.
The six species are:
- Antelope jackrabbit
- Black-tailed jackrabbit
- White-sided jackrabbit
