The pygmy rabbit is the smallest rabbit in North America. It is located in the sagebrush areas of the Great Basin which include parts of Oregon, California, Nevada, Utah, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, and Washington. It is interesting to note that back in 1990, the pygmy rabbit was listed as a threatened species by the Washington Wildlife Commission. The pygmy was then re-classified to an endangered status in 1993. Currently, there are hunting restrictions that vary by state that were established to try and protect pygmies and their young.
The Pygmy Rabbit is a cute little rabbit that grows to only 9-11 inches. They live in areas with tall, dense sagebrush like California, Oregon, Nevada, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, and Washington. They live an average of 3-5 years, but the adult mortality rate can be as high as 88%.
