Nature Smart: The unique marsh rabbit

Adept navigators of a soggy domain, marsh rabbits live in wetland ecosystems of the southeastern United States. True rabbits (not hares), they’re often seen walking on all four feet rather than hopping around. (Photo by Stan Tekiela)

While recently leading a photo tour in Florida, I was excited to see a crazy-cool critter and one of nature’s true rule-breakers!
I was walking a boardwalk over a shallow wetland. A wide variety of shrubs and small wetland trees dotted the landscape, along with plenty of aquatic plants and algae. The water was only a few inches to about a foot deep. Long-legged birds and ducks were swimming/walking around, feeding on insects and plants. It was a fine example of an ecosystem in balance.
