More than 15 species of rabbits, pikas and hares,
collectively referred to as lagomorphs, are widely
distributed across North America. Washington State is home
to eight of these species—six native species: Nuttall’s
Cottontail, Pygmy Rabbit, Pika, Snowshoe Hare, Black-tailed
Jackrabbit and White-tailed Jackrabbit and two non-native or
introduced species: Eastern Cottontail and Domestic Rabbit.
