CENTRAL FLORIDA CRITTER OF THE DAY: Marsh Rabbit (Sylvilagus palustris)
Smaller than its more common cousin, the Eastern Cottontail, this bunny swims so will be found where there is water habitat. I have a healthy populations of these cuties who apparently make use of the pond at night although I’ve yet to see them swim.
Diet: They enjoy Florida Native Plants including, but not limited to: cranesbill, plantain or bidens alba, hawkweed leaves, gallberry leaves and elephant foot leaves.
