Rabbit impersonating a hare

Look at the size of those ears - any hare would be proud of them!

I recently saw a rabbit in Ireland with very long ears like this one, I thought I'd found an Irish hare at first glance. We spent the whole of a two week holiday looking for Irish hare and finally spotted two on the last evening on a rocky beach of all places. We did look for other species as well I should point out - including the Kerry slug of which we saw seven, might not be mammals but they sure are pretty.
