Additional Information

The Black-tailed Jackrabbit occurs over all of Texas except the far northeast corner.

The jackrabbit is really a hare, not a rabbit. Hares have longer ears and longer hind legs in relation to body size than rabbits and are larger, lankier animals overall.

Young jackrabbits, or hares, are born fully furred, eyes open, and ready to run in a matter of hours.  Rabbits, on the other hand, give birth to naked, blind, helpless young.

Jackrabbits scratch out a hollow form in which to rest during the day.  It is an unimproved hole in the ground.  When a female approaches birth, she will carefully line this form with the softest vegetation she can find, and that is the extent of her nest building.

Jackrabbits normally feed at dusk, in the early hours of the evening, and just before dawn.  Jackrabbits eat a lot - they need to - for they are active, alert, nervous burners of energy.

High-resolution digital scans and special process inks are utilized to yield beautiful, accurate reproductions.

About the Artist - Charles Beckendorf

Charles grew up in Mathis, Texas, where he had the opportunity to spend hours on large ranches. Generous land owners gave him permission to wander freely over their ranches and he observed creatures in their natural surroundings. He developed a lifelong love of nature, whether it be in the tiniest of flowers or the largest of animals. It was at this time that he became a true naturalist.
